    From the event organizer:
    In 1930s Paris, leading modern artists experimented with tapestry design, thanks to pioneering entrepreneur Marie Cuttoli (1879–1973). Cuttoli lived between Algeria and Paris and collected work by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, and Georges Braque. This exhibition traces her career, from her early work in fashion and interiors to her revival of the French tapestry industry. She commissioned the most celebrated artists of her time—Rouault, Léger, Picasso, Braque, Le Corbusier, Man Ray, and Miró, among others—to create designs for the historic tapestry workshops in Aubusson. By uniting these important paintings and drawings with the resulting tapestry, this exhibition shows their true purpose, revealing modernism’s profound dialogue with the decorative arts.

    From the event organizer:
    How did clothing shape perceptions of women’s rights activists in the U.S. before and after the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, which legally allowed women the right to vote on a national level? From bloomers to bustles, purses to pantsuits, see how women’s fashion choices were used by the individual herself and others to define gender roles, as the year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of this moment in the long history of women’s rights.

    Marie Cuttoli: The Modern Thread from Miró to Man Ray

    Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia
    2025 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, Philadelphia, PA 19130, USA

    From the event organizer:
    In 1930s Paris, leading modern artists experimented with tapestry design, thanks to pioneering entrepreneur Marie Cuttoli (1879–1973). Cuttoli lived between Algeria and Paris and collected work by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, and Georges Braque. This exhibition traces her career, from her early work in fashion and interiors to her revival of the French tapestry industry. She commissioned the most celebrated artists of her time—Rouault, Léger, Picasso, Braque, Le Corbusier, Man Ray, and Miró, among others—to create designs for the historic tapestry workshops in Aubusson. By uniting these important paintings and drawings with the resulting tapestry, this exhibition shows their true purpose, revealing modernism’s profound dialogue with the decorative arts.
