Antonin Raymond and Noémi Pernessin Raymond Collection (050)
Best known for a series of finely detailed structures built in Japan during the 1930s, the Raymonds had a distinct and creative style that combined their European modern roots with the vernacular craft traditions they discovered in regions as diverse as Japan, India, and rural Pennsylvania. Their prolific careers included designs for factories, ofﬁce buildings, churches, and schools as well as furniture, fabrics, and graphic design. They also collaborated with some of the twentieth century's leading thinkers and artists, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Cass Gilbert, Isamu Noguchi, George Nakashima, and Fernand Lger.
This collection documents Antonin Raymond and Noémi Pernessin Raymond's architectural and artistic career. This includes personal correspondence, family photographs, paintings by Antonin Raymond, fabrics designed by Noémi Pernessin Raymond and architectural drawings.
