Jacqueline Groag

Jacqueline Groag’s energetic pattern designs shaped the textile industry post World War II. Groag’s bright prints were often inspired by art and science and helped define “contemporary” style. During her career she designed textiles for the Wiener Werkstatte in Vienna and subsequently designed unique hand printed lengths of fabrics for many of the leading Parisian fashion houses, including Chanel, Lanvin, Worth, Schiaparelli and Paul Poiret.

Phoenix Art Museum celebrates Groag’s beautiful contributions in their upcoming Exhibition Pattern Play: The Contemporary Designs of Jacqueline Groag, which opens April 10th.
