PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Emil Orlik

As a German-Bohemian painter, draughtsman and graphic artist, Emil Orlik (1870–1932) belonged to that generation of artists who developed their own visual language between realism and Jugendstil in the period around 1900. Prague, Munich, Vienna and Berlin were Orlik’s main points of reference in his life and work. He also spent a lot of time travelling: in Europe, but also in East Asia and the USA. Impressions of foreign countries, particularly Japan, are reflected spectacularly in his artistic Oeuvre.
