The development of textiles as an art form between 1945 and 1970, and the extent of collaboration between artists and textile manufacturers at this time, is unrivalled in modern art history. Raoul Dufy was the first twentieth-century artist to become seriously and successfully involved in producing textile designs. His work influenced and encouraged many other artists and textile companies in Britain, on the Continent and in America. After the war this movement really flowered with the involvement of leading artists of the day: Picasso, Matisse, Moore, Nicholson, Warhol, Steinberg, to name a few…
This new Textiles book is an important and comprehensive survey of this art form in Britain and America. Included are approximately 200 colour images, many of which have never been seen before, alongside specially commissioned photography.
Beautifully designed, Artist Designed Textiles 1940-1976 is a new volume produced from a series of textile design books including Jacqueline Groag, Shirley Craven and Hull Traders, and Zandra Rhodes: Textile Revolution, Medals, Wiggles and Pop 1961-1971.
