About this artwork

The most important figure at the Deutsche Werkstätten after 1922 was Josef Hillerbrand. He taught at the State school of Applied Art in Munich and became an active member of the workshop at the same time. Trained as an architect and mural painter, Hillerbrand came to focus on pattern design in many media, including textiles and wallpaper. He was influenced particularly by the work of Peche and others in Vienna, and one can see a lightness and joy in many of his designs. All of the artist-designers represented in this gallery and the next worked closely with Hillerbrand at DEWETEX, the workshop’s textile subsidiary.
