Julius Frank: textile and wallpaper designer
26 April 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Celia Frank will talk about the life and work of her father, Julius Frank (1897-1985), a Jewish German textile and wallpaper designer and artist who, despite having served in the German army during the First World War, was forced to flee from Berlin to Britain in 1936, where he established a successful design studio, Frank Designs Ltd. He eventually employed about twenty-five designers and sold designs to textile and wallpaper manufacturers in Britain, Europe and North America. Among his employees and associates were other emigrés, including the painter Walter Nessler and the renowned textile designer Tibor Reich. The event will be chaired by design historian Dr. Anna Nyburg.
