The MFAH presents the first museum retrospective in the United States devoted to Austrian artist and designer Koloman Moser. Instrumental in the modern-design revolution that swept Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, Moser (1868–1918) worked across varied types of media, in both two and three dimensions. His art is often characterized by precise geometric styles and frequently uses a black-and-white grid pattern.

Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna, 1897–1907 surveys the sum of Moser’s decorative-arts career through more than 200 objects, from jewelry, metalwork, glass, and ceramics to furniture, textiles, prints, and designs for architectural interiors. The exhibition comes to Houston following its premiere at the Neue Galerie in New York City.
