Koloman Moser ~ Biography (1868 - 1918)

Austrian painter, graphic artist and arts & crafts designer Moser studied at the Vienna Academy and then at the Arts & Crafts School, where he would later spend 8 years teaching.

Moser became known mainly through his designs for furniture, jewellery, glass and metal arts & crafts objects. He also designed a wealth of graphic art with characteristic, geometric patterns.

Later in life his focus was on expressionist painting.

About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Koloman Moser sculptures/figures than these Parastone figures anywhere. The attention to detail & the 3d effect breathes new life in the work of the masters.

Parastone was originally part of the famous Borzo art dealership which was founded in 1880 and it primarily specialised in restoring religious art. When, alongside the latter activity, an increasing number of sculptures were produced after own designs, it was decided – in 1963 – to found Parastone as an independent company.

For over 50 years now, Parastone has successfully designed decorative sculptures, partly of timeless classic beauty, partly aligned with current trends. The museum images entitled Mouseion constitute an important part of the collection. Alongside exact copies of important works of art, Mouseion also consists of three-dimensional interpretations of paintings and sketches by many artists ranging from Jheronimus Bosch to Salvador Dali.

Parastone is located in ’s-Hertogenbosch, a historic city in the Netherlands and the birthplace of famous Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch.

Koloman Moser and Parastone: what a magical combination.

During the fin-de-siècle, the ‘Wiener Sezession’ was formed by a group headed by Moser, Hoffmann and Klimt. It was literally a secession (= split) from the traditional Wiener Künstlerhaus. The mostly young artists wanted to create their own version of the Jugendstil, as others had already done in Munich and Berlin.The Wiener Sezession led to the 1903 formation of the Wiener Werkstätte, a workshop for applied art that aimed to reconcile the fine and applied arts (See original painting).

As of 2014, I found that amazon now stock the Koloman Moser Parastone sculptures. As it is impossible to compete with their buying power you may well find the sculpture cheaper there. I have put links to their US site below which will take you to their Koloman Moser sculpture page.

If I can ever compete with their prices then I will stock them again as I do love these sculptures and they deserve to be owned by as many people as possible. I also miss those conversations with fellow Parastone admirers who are adding a sculpture or starting a collection. For now it's enough to present them as beautifully as I possibly can or am able to do.
