Print, Wandbehang Die Reifezeit (Harvest Time Wall Hanging), plate 7, in Die Quelle: Flächen Schmuck (The Source: Ornament for Flat Surfaces)

This is a Print. It was designed by Koloman Moser. We acquired it in 1999. Its medium is color lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

The Harvest Time design refers to both plant and human fertility. Women in long robes decorated with checked borders hold pomegranates. The fruit is a traditional symbol of regeneration because of its numerous seeds. The black and white check motif alternates with the repeating circular fruits in a rhythmically patterned composition.
