Description

View of fabric entitled, "Reinterpretation of Strings and Things" designed by Ruth Adler Schnee. This piece was 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. "Schnee activates her textile designs with organic and geometric forms that appear to undulate and interact with each other. Her work, which resonates with the simple geometric patterns created by postwar Scandinavian designers and the biomorphic shapes of abstract expressionist painting, won awards from the Museum of Modern Art and the American Institute of Decorators."--Ellen M. Dodington from Cranbrook Art Museum: 100 Treasures. Printed on placard: ...originally designed 1954, circa 1996. Manufactured by Anzea Textiles, Fort Worth, Texas, ‘Baubles.’
