Wolfgang von Wersin

Wolfgang von Wersin

Born in Prague in 1882, Wolfgang von Wersin completed his architectural studies with an intermediate diploma in Munich at the age of 21. Here he visited the "Experimental Atelier for Applied and Free Art", a reform-oriented art school that aimed to bring together applied and visual arts. From 1912 he also worked as a designer for Deutsche Werkstätten AG and within a very short time gained as much recognition for his furniture, fabric, wallpaper and ceramic designs as he did as an exhibition architect. In 1929 he took over the management of the "Neue Sammlung" founded in Munich in 1925, the department for commercial art at the National Museum, until his unlawful dismissal by the National Socialists in 1934.
