Description

View of hanging fabrics designed by Ruth Adler Schnee in 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. These fabrics using some of her older designs were created in the 1990's as interest in Schnee's work was revitalized. “Adler Schnee’s vintage textile patterns of the 1940s and the 1950s 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,”—Educator’s guide based on Ruth Adler Schnee: Modern Designs for Living.
