  7. Sophia L. Crownfield Textile Designs On View


    Sophia Louise Crownfield was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1862. By 1889 she moved to New York City and soon began working as a designer for the textile industry, creating floral- and plant-based patterns for the women's dress silk trade. This collection of Crownfield's work was given to MICA in 1941 but only recently came to the Decker Library so that it can be accessed by the community. The exhibit features examples of work done as studies toward designs for textile patterns. Many drawings are in a linear realistic style with emphasis on the structure of the plants. Some of the studies, particularly those in color, emphasize the volume of the subject. Then there are examples of more abstracted motifs as the artist developed textile patterns, and some examples of completed silk textiles are included. The exhibit runs from May 1 - 26, 2017.
