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 315 linen designation are best suited for curtains, pillows and other textile products. They can also be used as upholstery fabric on furniture that is not exposed to excessive wear, such as in the home.
