Grete Prytz Kittelsen (1917–2010) is regarded as "the queen of Scandinavian design". Her sphere of influence in the history of decorative art and design stretches from the Scandinavian Design period, 1945–65, to today. This book is the first comprehensive presentation of her work. An artist with an exceptionally broad scope, she designed jewelry and one-of-a-kind silver articles for her family’s long-established Oslo firm, J. Tostrup, as well as beautiful utilitarian items in enameled steel and cast iron that found their way into thousands of homes worldwide—in Scandinavia, the United States, and worldwide.
The English version of a new book: ‘Grete Prytz Kittelsen – The Art of Enamel Design ’ was launched in the US this week. Grete Prytz Kittelsen’s works are already design icons and popular collectors’ items. This book situates her in the forefront of artist/craftspeople of the twentieth century.Read more >
