This exhibition features work by the artist, theater designer, interior designer, and longtime friend of Charles Demuth, Robert E. Locher. Locher was well known for his illustrations in publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and House and Garden, as well as interior design. He was considered one of the leading modern designers of the 20th century. Prolific during his time and well respected by his contemporaries, some of Locher’s clients included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and Juliana Force. Robert E. Locher: A Modern Classic exhibit features furniture, housewares, costume designs, and other work by this all but forgotten artist.
Accompanying this exhibition is a major catalogue, Robert E. Locher: A Modern Classic by Anne M. Lampe with author Charlie Schroeder published by the Demuth Museum.
