Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon

Synopsis

Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon by Susan Seid

Legendary designer and artist Vera Neumann (1907-1993) believed in art's ability to inspire and enrich lives. An innovator and one of the most successful female entrepreneurs of her time, Vera built her company on a radical philosophy: fine art should be accessible to everyone, not just a select few. Known for her iconic images of cheerful flowers, trendy geometrics, and vibrant ladybugs, people should surround themselves with art in every aspect of their lifestyle. For the first time, Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon , tells her inspiring story through the art and designs she created. Vera is a biography about a creative soul, but also a woman who was adventurous and entrepreneurial, traveling across the world from Bombay to Lima gathering inspiration along the way. Richly illustrated with Vera's original sketches, paintings, and photographs of her worldwide travels, readers are introduced to the amazing woman behind the art and the dynamic designs that continue to inspire the world of art, design, and fashion.
