These patterns are just so incredible! The first two are actual wall-hangings, the last is a sketch of ideas for wall-hangings. All are the work of Gunta Stölzl, a German textile artist from the early 20th century. She entered the famous Bauhaus School as a student in 1920, and ended up as a teacher there in 1928. Still, I’d never heard of her until today when I saw her on Now Voyager, who is also real impressed. If you are interested too, check out this website, it’s got a detailed biography and quite a few pictures of her work.
Something about Gunta’s designs reminds me a little bit of the Gee’s Bend Quilts. What do you think?
