Artist Statement

Greyhound comes from Austrian artist Moriz Jung (1885-1915). Originally a postcard, Greyhound was created by Jung in 1912 for the Wiener Werkstätte, a Viennese production association of artists, architects, designers, and artisans. A talented illustrator, Jung’s woodcut prints were bright and often jovial, characterized by thick lines and a graphic style. His subjects often included caricatures of cafe-goers, early aviation, and of course, dogs.

Why We Love It

Jung’s Greyhound is striking with its heavy, stark lines set against a poppy—almost whimsical— turquoise botanical backdrop. Characteristic of the Wiener Werkstätte style, Jung blends the dynamism of Art Nouveau with the ornamental floral drama of Baroque decorative motifs. The result? A modern muscled hound so incongruous to that bouncy background, he seems ready to bolt right off the page. With those long, lanky legs and signature visage, this pup flaunts all our fave features of greyhound glory. Read more on the blog!

Jung began creating postcards for the Wiener Werkstätte while still a student in Vienna in 1907. Largely considered a pioneering movement for modern design, the organization emphasized complete artistic freedom while marrying traditional methods of manufacturing with a distinctly avant-garde aesthetic. With a vast roster of skilled craftsmen and a complex production and distribution network, the Wiener Werkstätte aimed for its many activities to complement and promote each other. Their postcards—the least expensive of their offerings—often featured... Read More
