    schema:reviewBody ""The development of textiles as an art form between 1945 and 1970, and the extent of the collaboration between artists and textile manufacturers in Britain at this time, is unrivalled in modern art history. Although there were a number of examples of artists designing manufactured and hand-made fabrics during the late nineteenth century, none really succeeded in the production of 'art for the people'. Even William Morris' strong socialist commitments could not prevent him from producing for a relatively small elite." "Artists' Textiles in Britain 1945-1970 is an important and comprehensive survey of this art form including a review of its roots in Europe and Russia from 1910, summaries of the most significant developments and exhibitions of the three decades post 1945, illustrations of over 100 colour designs of textiles by artists and brief biographies of artists and manufacturers working in this field."--Jacket." ;
