Scenic, Serenade, 1948–50
A prolific designer across different media, Ilonka Karasz was very aware of Asian art, as can be seen in this panel. The work bears resemblance to the Safavid structure of idealized space and geometric patterns. The surfaces have a textured look—a technique she often employed in her wallpaper designs.
