Marianne Strengell Papers

Collection Creator:
Strengell, Marianne, 1909-1998  Search this
Extent:
1.5 Linear feet (Box 1-3)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1904-1980s
Scope and Contents:
Biographical sketches are found for Strengell and her architect father, Gustav Strengell.

Correspondence is from artist friends and institutions. Notable correspondents include Harry Bertoia, Charles Dusenbury, Jack Lenor Larsen, Eliel Saarinen, Astrid Sampe, Nelly Homi Sethna, and Harry Weese.

Two unpublished manuscripts by Strengell date are entitled "Rugs, Rugs, Rugs" (original collation) and "Paris" (a xerox copy). Other writings include drafts of press releases concerning Strengell's work abroad and the exhibition of her artwork and a draft of a report of craft development in Jamaica written by Hammarstrom and Strengell.

Five scrapbooks were compiled between circa 1937 and 1966 and may include clippings, photographs, writings, and textile samples spanning Strengell's career. Most of the scrapbooks focus on Strengell's exhibitions and appearances in magazines; scrapbooks 3-5, however, document her trip to the Philippines and Jamaica as a weaving consultant. One scrapbook was compiled by Marianne's mother, Anna Strengell, and contains clippings from Swedish-language Finnish newspapers on her Marianne Strengell's career and also includes writings.

Photographs depict Strengell at her loom, with her artworks at exhibition, and with her students at Cranbrook. Also found are fine art photographs taken by Strengell during the 1960s. Vacation snapshots were taken in 1932 and are likely from a Scandinavian location.

An unsigned sketchbook was likely kept during her honeymoon with Charles Dusenbury in 1940 and contains drawings of scenes throughout the American West and Southwest. Other artworks include monoprints and textile samples.
