Power and originality: the iconic print designs of Lucienne Day

Post-war Britain wanted colour and style and textile designer Lucienne Day was the one to supply it. Her “resolute modernist” designs, drawing in particular on the visual language of artists like Klee and Calder, were both popular and influential. Later work included carpets, ceramics and aircraft interiors.  Notably, most of her work was aimed at the mass market: “She made the link between mass production and fine art.”
