The Isaburo & Felice “Lizzi” Ueno-Rix Collection: From Vienna to Kyoto/From Architecture to Crafts
Felice Ueno-Rix Casket, “From a Travelling Play in Pai-ch’eng-tzu, China
     In 2006/2007, The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto received all of the remaining works and reference materials of UENO Isaburō (1892–1972) and Felice Rix-Ueno (1893–1967) as a gift from the Kyoto Interactive School of Art.  UENO Isaburō graduated from Waseda University and was hired at Josef Hoffmann’s architecture firm in Vienna, where he married Felice “Lizzi” Rix.  Rix studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule (Viennese School of Applied Arts) and worked with such materials as textiles, ceramics, and cloisonné at the Wiener Werkstätte (Viennese Workshops).  The couple moved to Japan, where Rix eventually became a professor at the present Kyoto City University of Arts.  Through the valuable drawings, magazines, and other materials by UENO Isaburō, who was a founding member of the International Architecture Society Japan, and the works by Felice Rix-Ueno demonstrating the fusion of sensibilities of Vienna and Kyoto, this exhibition will cast the footsteps of the two artists in a new light.
