The 1910s and 1920s were boom years for the applied arts of the Danube region. In addition to the Wiener Werkstätte, a myriad of superb manufactures was established that manufactured form-conscious, high quality art objects in the style of the times and in the most varied materials. One of these companies was the Werkstätten KARAU in Vienna/Roth-Neusiedl. Especially the ceramics of this company were masterful in design and execution. These products are known on the art market but are clearly underestimated. The KARAU rarities have only been published by way of example to date. With this work now appearing, entitled Werkstätten Karau-Wien – Kostbarkeiten der wilden 20er (Werkstätten KARAU-Vienna—treasures of the wild 20s), we now have a documentation of this exciting manufacture, its brief history, and its artists.
 
Rudolf Felt, born in Vienna as Rudolf Feldbaum, was an artist who has remained completely unknown to date. His ceramics in particular turned up now and again in the trade, but the signatures could not be assigned. His artistic oeuvre is reconstructed and many of his designs and creations are presented in the book discussed here, entitled Die Entdeckung von Rudolf Felt (The discovery of Rudolf Felt). In workshops in Vienna and then in Kitzbühel, Rudolf Felt created high quality, often grotesque objects. He was also active on behalf of the Goldscheider company as a designer and counted Vally Wieselthier, Gudrun Baudisch, or Walter Bosse among his colleagues. Josef Hoffmann or Michael Powolny were among his teachers at the Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule (Vienna School of Arts and Crafts). This discovery closes a gap in the history of the applied arts of Viennese Modernism.
