He was born in Germany, earned a PhD in German Literature from the University of Vienna in 1935, and immigrated to the United States in 1939. While pursuing a literary career through the publication of novels, plays, and poems, Maury developed an interest in India, which he visited many times from the 1950s through the 1970s. He conducted research on Indian folk art, and kept extensive photographic records.

Extent:
Film reels (83 minutes, color silent reversal, 3000 feet, 16mm)
Type:
Archival materials
Film reels
Date:
1979-1981
Scope and Contents:
Full film record documenting the process of producing patola double-ikat woven saris in Gujarat, India. Footage focuses on the work of a single family of master weavers in Patan, Gujarat, one of the few remaining families of weavers who produce the special ikat saris worn by brides of certain castes in the Gujarat region. The film includes footage of each step in the process from tie-dying the thread to warping of the looms to weaving the cloth to removing the sari from the loom. The unedited footage does not present the process in a step-by-step manner, rather, it documents the work as it occurred over the course of several visits during two years of research and filming.
