A Passion for Color
By Ronit Eisenbach and Caterina Frisone
This catalogue accompanied an exhibition by the same name at Museo di Palazzo, Venezia in 2011.
Drawing inspiration from artifacts as diverse as the threads on her sewing table, the plan of her neighborhood, or seedpods found on the beach, Ruth Adler Schnee unearths the underlying structure of her source and translates her encounters into the medium of cloth. She expertly employs texture, pattern & color to create designs that hover between reference & abstraction. Her friends and collaborators included Charles & Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Frank Lloyd Wright, Minoru Yamasaki, & Buckminster Fuller.
The catalogue provides fascinating biographical information about this iconic woman & richly illustrates her mid-century modern textile designs.
