Gardena, CA, USALive Auction
Description: Hoppe, Emil Otto (Viennese 1878-1972) Emil Hoppe, a student under Otto Wagner at the Akademie in Vienna, known as the Wagnerschule _ represent something of a revolution in drawing: Tiny in size and minimal in scale they are pregnant with pictorial ideas. The sketches break from the schematic, explicatory measured line-drawing conventions of 1840-1900. These conventions were influenced by the need to reproduce plates in the inexpensive, high-volume, circulating journals of the newsprint era.
