Description

View of model "room" setup to exhibit many of the textiles designed by Ruth Adler Schnee in the 1940's and 1950's, with three wire chairs around a small table. This room is part of an exhibition entitled, "Ruth Adler Schnee: Modern Designs for Living," held at the Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, MI, December 14, 2019 - March 15, 2020. Printed on placard: Adler Schnee’s vintage textile patterns of the 1940’s and the 1950’s demonstrate a strong sense of form, color, and their interplay on a broad range of fabrics. Intended primarily for use as draperies, the graphic quality of her designs is enlivened further by the interaction of light and movement.
