Four years after the death of Lucie Rie, who was born in Vienna in 1902, the MAK presents some of ther ceramics in the first
exhibition devoted to this artist in Austria. Lucie Rie's works, which have been shown in important exhibitions among others
in Japan and the United States, are characterized by a very personal style and the utmost subtlety. Her oeuvre is determined
by the consistent desire to unite opposites: hardness and fragility, economy and luxury, light and dark tones, simple shapes
and sophisticated surface appearance. Her fascinating creations are now finally being adequately presented in her native city.
