A major retrospective of the textile designer, printmaker and illustrator who helped define mid-century design.

Marking the 20th anniversary of Marx’s death, this exhibition brings together over 150 pieces from private and public collections, many displayed for the first time.

A contemporary of Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden, Marx was one of the first ever women to be named a Royal Designer for Industry.

Best known for her iconic London underground fabrics, she also created textiles for the wartime Utility Furniture Scheme, patterned paper for Curwen Press, book covers for King Penguin and the stamps for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation.
