Abstracted Forms


Robert Stewart, the Scottish designer and artist, was a contemporary of Lucienne Day and one of the few designers she admired. A prolific worker, Stewart produced paintings, tapestries, graphics, ceramics and murals but it is his textile designs that have been the most influential, in particular those produced by Liberty, Pringle and Donald Brothers in the 1950's.
Eight of his designs from the 50's are being digitally reproduced by the Centre for Advanced Textiles and are available for purchase here.
