Wolfgang von Wersin
Born in Prague in 1882, Wolfgang von Wersin completed his architectural studies in Munich at the age of 21 with an intermediate diploma. Here he attended the "Lehr- und Versuchs-Atelier für angewandte und freie Kunst," a reform-oriented art school that aimed to bring together applied and fine arts. From 1912, he also worked as a designer for the Deutsche Werkstätten AG and within a very short time gained recognition for his furniture, fabric, wallpaper and ceramic designs, as well as for his work as an exhibition architect. In 1929, he took over as director of the Neue Sammlung in Munich, the department for commercial art at the National Museum, which had been founded in 1925 - until his unlawful dismissal by the National Socialists in 1934.
