Helene Ladstätter (1892 - 1970 Vienna)
Austrian printmaker. Although her identity (family) is still a mystery she is mentioned in an article in “the Studio Magazine” 1924, Vol. 87, page 136-137. Here she is mentioned (and praised) as “Miss H. Ladstätter”. In the article were also mentioned Dr. Emma Bormann (1887-1974) and a print entitled “Dorfstrasse”. She exhibited in 1939 together with printmakers William Giles (1872-1939), Yoshijiro Urushibara (1888-1953), Engelbert Lap (1886-1970) and others at Colnaghi Art Gallery in Bondstreet London. This firm in the 1920-30s had strong connections with the art business in America possibly explaining her prints surfacing in America. She is known by 4 (alpine) woodblock prints sold/auctioned in recent years in America and England.
She was probably a member of the “Verein für Bildende Künstlerinnen Österreichs” (VBKÖ) because in 1970 her obituary is kept in its archives
Exhibited 1947 in the Große Östereichische Kunstausstellung with (a.o.) Valerie Praschniker and Elfriede Miller-Hauenfels.
