Ruth Adler Schnee: Modern Designs for Living

Ruth Adler Schnee - Modern Designs for Living

This monograph presents the work of textile and interior designer Ruth Adler Schnee, still in active practice at age 96, affirming her pivotal role in the development of the modern interior. At the core of this volume, published to accompany the first major museum retrospective of Adler Schnee's work, is the body of textile patterns she has created over the course of her prolific seven-decade career, including the screen-printed fabrics that helped define midcentury American modernism as well as their later iterations as woven textiles.
