Enid Marx: Print, Pattern and Popular Art

The first major exhibition for 40 years celebrating Enid Marx

When, Where

Enid Marx (1902-1998) was a textile designer, printmaker and illustrator who, alongside her contemporaries Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden, defined mid-­20th century design.

The exhibition will be the most comprehensive retrospective of Marx’s work to be mounted in the last 40 years.  It will bring together over 150 pieces from private and public collections, many previously unseen.

She is best known today for her industrial textiles for the London Transport Board and wartime Utility Furniture Scheme. But over a career spanning seven decades her work was extraordinarily varied, encompassing patterned paper for Curwen Press, book illustration for King Penguin as well as stamp, poster and print design.

The exhibition is co-curated by historian Dr Alan Powers, author of the first monograph on Marx being published by Lund Humphries in March.

Generously supported by the Jeremy and John Sacher Charitable Trust and the Exhibition Supporters Group.
