Rural Sophistication

The design of an Amish Quilt is one of the most iconic symbols of rural sophistication - geometric, bold, exquisitely crafted. Marguerite Zorach's artwork, mostly rural interior scenes, portrays country life in much the same way an Amish quilt symbolizes it....colorful with a sense of humor and a smart, sophisticated balance.
