Darrin Alfred presents a gallery talk on Pattern Play: The Contemporary Designs of Jacqueline Groag. Following the prolonged trauma of the Second World War a renewed public appetite for color and pattern flourished. Designers in Britain responded enthusiastically to the freedom of the post-war period, creating dynamic and stimulating patterns inspired by art, architecture, and everyday life. Czech-born Jacqueline Groag was one of the most versatile women designers of this period. From the colorful and playful to the abstract and sculptural Groag’s work contributed to Britain’s spirit of renewal and defined this popular style.
