Description: A Golden Thread. The Prutscher Collection of Viennese Children's Books 1900-1938 brings together a very large sampling of images, and traces, through the close connection between Prutscher and his birthplace, the history of Vienna from the declining years of an empire to the idealism of a socialist experiment, to the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany.
More than 140 children's books to which are added 13 leporellos, 178 postcards, drawings and print proofs, donated in 2022 to the Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense by Beba Restelli, granddaughter of Otto Prutscher and daughter of Ilse. The collection includes titles by great authors such as Hoffmann, Brentano, Mörike, and Wilde, and illustrations by artists such as Richard Teschner, Marie (Rie) Cramer, and Carl Otto Czeschka.
