Drawing, Serenade, 1948
These three drawings by Ilonka Karasz are original designs for mural wallcoverings manufactured by Katzenbach & Warren, Inc. in New York. Karasz’s murals were created using a blueprint method of reproduction from original drawings, including these three panels. The drawings represent an important part of the production process, but are exquisite and unique examples of Karasz’s draftsmanship. Together they complement the two sketches already held in Cooper Hewitt’s collection, which feature her designs for metal tableware.
Its dimensions are
