NEW YORK —
Candace Wheeler, a national expert on decorative textiles and interiors during the 19th century, will be the focus of an exhibition opening Oct. 10 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Wheeler was one of the first women to work in the male-dominated design world of that century and also devoted her life to educating young women and encouraging their careers in the field of applied arts.
"Candace Wheeler: The Art and Enterprise of American Design, 1875-1900," the first major retrospective to address the accomplishments of Wheeler, will feature some 105 works including textiles, wallpapers, drawings, paintings, photographs of interiors, and furniture. Much of the exhibition will demonstrate the uniquely American style of design created by Wheeler and her associates and will be on view through Jan. 6, 2002.
