Textile, Anemone

This is a Textile. It was designed by Felice Rix-Ueno and manufactured by Wiener Werkstätte. It is dated 1927 and we acquired it in 1958. Its medium is silk and its technique is block printed on plain weave. It is a part of the Textiles department.

The delicate textile designs of Felice Rix-Ueno show the influence of the several trips she made to Japan before relocating to Kyoto with her husband, Japanese architect Isaburo Ueno. She designed textiles, wallcoverings, ceramics, and cloisonné for the Wiener Werkstätte from before World War I until 1930.

This object was donated by Teresa Kilham. It is credited Gift of Teresa Kilham.
