DescriptionEnglish Textile design of the late 19th century This exhibition presents a representative selection of English fabrics from the MAK Collection of Textiles and Carpets. These textiles were purchased in England for the museum and presented to the Viennese public while they were still new. Hence, Vienna’s artists and tradespeople got to know and took inspiration from these innovative, English-designed products even prior to 1900, as is shown prominently in the new Vienna 1900 exhibit of the MAK Permanent Collection. The best-known English designers of their era, figures including William Morris, Walter Crane and Charles F. A. Voysey, are represented in this showing by fabric and wallpaper designs characterized above all by generously dimensioned repeat patterns as well as patterns derived from plants and flowers.
