Enid Marx: Print, Pattern and Popular Art

Friday 25 May 2018Sunday 23 September 2018

Comprehensive exhibition of work by textile designer, printmaker and illustrator Enid Marx (1902-1998), who, alongside her contemporaries Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden, defined mid-century design. Includes over 150 pieces from private and public collections, many previously unseen. Best known for the fabrics she created for London Transport's tube seats and the wartime Utility Furniture Scheme, Marx was the first ever female engraver to be awarded the title of Royal Designer for Industry. But over a career spanning seven decades her work was extraordinarily varied, encompassing patterned paper for Curwen Press, book covers for King Penguin and the stamps for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation.
