Artist textiles: Picasso to Warhol. Tilburg- The Netherlands.
A visit to the Textile Museum in Tilburg could be considered as one of the most inspiring experiences you can have at a museum...especially when there is a whole exposition of all the modern masters altogether at the same room, such Warhol, Matisse, Dali or Picasso...
This place is a festival of colour, textures and art! -The Artist Textiles- is precisely the exposition that perfectly displays the whole story about how artist started to look for ways to make their works more appealing to the broader audience when they discovered design and the development of mass-produced textiles, in a such a way that designing pattern and motifs for fabrics became an important component of an artist's work. That was the breakthrough when modern art became accessible to all...in fabrics! mass-produced design! and ready-to-wear! all concepts that changed completely our era of art, fashion and design.

The exhibition portraits in a very interesting way the whole story about fabric design through artist's works and their styles; there you can find objects like: books, paintings, the fabrics and the actual clothes that have been made, with examples from Fauvism, Cubism, Constructivism, Modernism, Surrealism and Pop Art. I personally loved Andy Warhol's designs! He managed to keep his designs still very colorful but in a simple and playful way; he placed awesome prints and illustrations in his typical artsy style.
