Collection: Enid Marx   1902 - 1998 

Enid Marx (1902-1998) was an influential artist and designer whose wide-ranging work included textile design, printmaking, book illustration and even postage stamps.

Marx was born in London and was a distant relative of German philosopher and theorist Karl Marx. She developed a talent for art at Roedean school and studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and the Royal College of Art (RCA).

Though she left the RCA without a diploma, she was part of an ‘outbreak of talent’ that included other multi-talented artists Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious and Barnett Freedman.
