Marguerite Zorach: An Analysis of her Embroidered Tapestry, "The Family Supper"
MetadataShow full item record
An important figure in the development of American modernism in the early 20th century, Marguerite Zorach (1887-1968) experimented with a wide range of media, producing oil paintings, prints, sculptures, embroideries, batiks, bedspreads, hooked rugs and poetry over the course of her lifetime. This thesis is concerned with one of Marguerite’s most significant and complex works, The Family Supper, completed in 1922. The Family Supper is one of seventeen large-scale embroideries Marguerite created between 1913 and 1949. As with many of these “embroidered tapestries,” as she called them, the theme of The Family Supper ostensibly was taken from or inspired by her life. It is located today in the private collection of one of the grandsons of the artist.
