Gerald Wilde

1905 - 1986 / English

Gerald Wilde’s work is abstract, yet it bares little stylistic similarity to the other abstract artists that emerged in London in the 1940s and 1950s. Wilde's design “Firefly” for an Ascher square was accompanied by a poem, which could be viewed as analogous to many of the revered artistic careers. Wilde also created quite a number of designs for textiles whose bold abstract patterns were completely different than anything that had been used in fashion before.
