The Fred and Elinor Wrobel Collection – Textiles and Embellished Treasures
Gallery76 is honoured to be hosting a sale of textile works from the renowned collection of Fred and Elinor Wrobel. The exhibition will feature a diverse array of pieces amassed for over sixty years.
Textiles form a particularly significant part of the Wrobel Collection. Elinor had a passion for wearable art, which evolved into a broader love of textiles as a medium. She was committed to championing female artists, investing in many whose work was underappreciated at the time.
The exhibition will reflect the extraordinary vision and diverse interests of Fred and Elinor, with highlights including contemporary textile art, ancient Coptic embroideries (pictured), historic samplers and stumpwork, and Asian cultural pieces.
