Textile, Juin, 1930
This is a textile. It was designed by Paul Poiret and manufactured by F. Schumacher & Co.. It is dated 1930 and we acquired it in 1994. Its medium is cotton and its technique is printed by engraved roller on plain weave. It is a part of the Textiles department.
American manufacturer F. Schumacher & Co. commissioned Paul Poiret to create its first collection of furnishing textiles by a major designer. A Schumacher advertisement for his designs proclaimed, “Turn your house into a modern garden.” This pattern’s stylized florals and vegetation, rich red color, and lively composition recall Poiret’s earlier Atelier Martine textiles.
