Josef Frank worked in New York from 1941-1946. Field manuals and botanical dictionaries inspired this and many of the other prints, which he designed during this time. The Window print is comprised of common houseplants. Perhaps some of them were in the windowsills of Josef Frank and his wife Anna’s Manhattan apartment in Park Terrace Gardens.
Josef Frank’s textiles with the 100 linen designation are made of a thin linen that is best suited for curtains.
