Reading my feed from The Textile Blog which came through this morning I was thrilled to see that Jacqueline Groag was the featured artist. As a contemporary of Lucienne Day, who I looked at in-depth in assignment 4, I lightly reviewed some of her work as a designer of the time.
The article posted today by John Hopper has some excellent examples of early work from the 1930s, whilst also referencing her later work, influences and evolving practice. Anyone interested in patterning, fabric design and structured printing layouts may find this an informative article which could lead to further research into other artists of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.

A couple of later examples of her work appear below:
Jacqueline Groag, Traffic Lights, 1953 for David Whitehead Ltd.
Jacqueline Groag, Abstract Frames and Pebbles, 1952 For David Whitehead Ltd and Formica.
