    Both Hagenauer brothers, Karl and Franz, took part at this design. Franz designed the form and Karl designed the horse. The Horse was a popular theme for the Werkstatte Hagenauer. The freedom and dynamic in the movement of this animal is what many buyers liked. This depiction is especially reduced with its elegant pose and its simplified attributes. The quality of craftsmanship is, typical for Hagenauer, very high. Inside the housing is a Quarz-clock which is powered by battery.


    Werkstätte Hagenauer – stylistic evolution and importance

    Today, the Werkstatte Hagenauer is rightfully among the most important Austrian Arts & Crafts manufacturers of the 20th century. The clear, strict formal language combined with dynamic poses and the usage of brass, nickel-plated, patinated or bare, along with copper, alpaca and exotic wood shows a high level of recognition.

    However, it took the siblings Karl and Franz Hagenauer quite some time until they developed their own unique style. Karl and Franz both attended the Vienna School of Arts & Crafts and studied under Josef Hoffmann, Oskar Strnad, Anton Hanak and Dagobert Peche.

    Until the closure of the Werkstatte Hagenauer on December 30, 1987, art objects of outstanding quality were still being produced. The siblings Karl and Franz Hagenauer strongly contributed in coining the term „design“ through their legacy and are surely among the most influential Austrian artists of the 20th century.
