Lenore Tawney (1907-2007) was a pioneering American artist. She created a body of innovative woven work that helped to shape the course of fiber art during the second half of the twentieth century. Tawney is equally known for the highly personal collages, sculptural assemblages, drawings and postcards that she began during the 1960s and continued to create throughout her long life.
