Mariska Undi. Design for children’s room. 1903

Mariska Undi Design for children’s room 1903

  • MoMA, Floor 3, 3 North The Philip Johnson Galleries

In an effort to modernize Hungary’s textile industry and alleviate rural poverty, the Ministry of Culture established a national weaving school in Gödöllő, where a colony of artists and craftspeople had recently been established. The school’s training program was both practical and stimulating to individual artistic expression, equipping students with the means to shape their everyday surroundings as well as find employment. This interior scheme is typical of the colony’s products in its references to preindustrial folk textiles and the idea of a total work of art. It was one of many pattern sheets distributed to schools, factories, and arts and crafts workshops throughout Hungary.

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
