- Summary: Some of the most compelling designs of the last 75 years are featured in Treasures from the Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom Workshop, which tells the story of Swedish artisan Maas-FjetterstroNm (1873-1941) and Sweden's tradition in handicrafts. Maas-FjetterstroNm was an industrious weaver who found her inspiration in the natural world, the Orient and the North. Her designs were informed by native Swedish and Oriental textile traditions, as well as from forms in nature, which she studied in rigorous detail. Maas-FjetterstroNm created close to 700 designs in her lifetime and her workshop had an influence on American weaving in the 20th century. Many of Maas-FjetterstroNms designs are included in museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Louvre. Treasures highlights the woven masterpieces of Maas-FjetterstroNm, as well as to those of MMW artisans Barbro Nilsson, Marianne Richter, Ann-Mari Forsberg and Mai Wellner. Richly illustrated with numerous historical photographs.
