Marion Dorn (1896-1964) for Edinburgh Weavers 'Magnolia' furnishing fabric, 1936 cotton and rayon 202cm x 116cm. Literature: Lesley Jackson, Alastair Morton and Edinburgh Weavers, V&A Publishing, London, 2012, p.94, pl.135. "In 1936, Edinburgh Weavers proudly announced the launch of Magnolia (1936), a stylized floral in four 'lovely new shades' screen printed on undyed semi-lustre velvet. Composed of a large flower and a leafy stem in outline, overlaid with daubs of colour, the pattern was promoted as 'languorous' and 'romantic', evoking the 'waxen-petalled magnolias of the Old South'.

Madame Solomon, commanditaire d'origine pour son salon de musique en 1932, Holland Park, Londres.
Artiste américaine, Marion Dorn s'installe en Angleterre dans les années 20. Elle se fait d'abord remarquer pour ses créations de batik avant d'entamer une brillante carrière dans le tapis moderne noué main. Tout au long des années 30, elle dessine pour la Royal Wilton Carpet Factory et réalise des commandes privées de clients prestigieux tels Noël Coward et Syrie Maugham. C'est elle aussi qui exécute les tapis de l'Hôtel Savoy, du Eltham Palace et du Transatlantique 'Queen Mary'. Ses créations sont présentées à l'Exposition Universelle de Paris et au Metropolitan de New York en 1937, ainsi qu'à la Golden Gate International Exhibition de San Francisco en 1939. Son travail est présent dans de nombreuses institutions internationales.

American-born graphic artist Dorn relocated in Britain during the 1920s and immediately attracted attention for batik to designs, before embarking on a highly successful career as a designer of exceptional hand-knotted Modernist carpets. Throughout the 1930s Dorn produced designs for the Royal Wilton Carpet Factory, in addition to securing private commisions for prestigious clients that included Nöel Coward and Syrie Maugham. Other commissions during the 1930s included carpets designed for the Savoy Hotel, Eltham Palace, and the transatlantic liner, the Queen Mary. Examples of Dorn's designs were exhibited at the Exposition Universelle, Paris, and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, both in 1937, and the Golden Gate International Exhibition, San Francisco, 1939. Her work is represented in numerous international institutions.
