Marianne Richter began working as a textile and ceramic artist after completing her studies at Konstfack, Stockholm (University of College of Arts, Crafts and Design). Introduced to the Märta Måås-Fjetterström workshop in 1942 by Barbro Nilsson, Richter’s intensely colorful designs standing out among the studios remarkable output. Richter was responsible for the impressively scaled, wall-hanging –the largest known tapestry in the world at the time–designed for the United Nations, New York in 1950. Several of her other designs were acquired by museums such as the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm.
