THE ARTIST HOME - ENGEL AND NIKOLAI ASTRUP
In the summer season of 2017 we focused on Engel Astrup's prints on textiles and the collaboration between Engel and Nikolai Astrup on aprons for the national costumes of their region. Now we have found some new information concerning Engel Astrup's production. We have gained an overview over where some of the patterns Engel used came from, but we continue searching to find out what patterns she possibly designed herself.
We would still like to have more information about, and photos of, her textiles in private ownership.
