Jack Lenor Larsen : Creator and Collector / David Revere McFadden, Mildred Friedman, Lotus Stack & Jack Lenor Larsen

£17.99

Product description

This hardback book is in very good condition. The dust jacket is present and in very good condition, apart from light edge wear and a 5mm tear and bumping at the base of the spine. Internally the pages are in excellent condition - clean, tight and unmarked - almost as new.

A major profile of one of the greatest textile designers of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, this compelling written beautifully illustrated book juxtaposes over forty of Larsen's most innovative textile designs with treasures of world and contemporary arts from his own collections that have helped to inspire them.
"Widely considered a master of twentieth-century textile design, world-renowned designer Jack Lenor Larsen has also collected the crafts of world cultures and related contemporary art for the last fifty years. The synergy between his design and his collecting is the subject of this stimulating book, which offers insights into Larsen's artistic vision and the nature of creativity itself. Over forty of Larsen's most innovative textiles are juxtaposed with the treasures that helped to inspire them. Engagingly revealed is Larsen's eye for art by such well-known figures as Dale Chihuly, Dame Lucie Rie, and Wharton Esherick, among others, as well as anonymous but no less gifted artists from Japan, Korea, Colombia, Africa and India. Also discussed are Larsen's contributions to modern textile, interior and architectural design, and his often ground-breaking technical achievements. A narrative chronology, the most complete in print, concludes this compelling profile of a celebrated creator, world-travelling collector, and friend to artists and artisans of all nations."
The book is lavishly illustrated with colour photographs.
