Decorative and applied arts played a major role in shaping the Modernist aesthetic. Western artists and collectors saw textiles, particularly the abstract and handcrafted textiles from non-Western societies, as attractive alternatives to the European academic art tradition. Virginia Gardner Troy examines the importance of textiles within the context of 20th-century art and design.
