Marguerite Zorach (nĂ©e Thompson) (1887 - 1968) was an American fauvist painter, textile artist and graphic designer and was an early exponent of modernism in America, she won the Logan Medal of the arts.
Marguerite Thompson Zorach produced most of her innovative work from shortly after her first arrival in Paris in 1908 until 1920. This was a period of experimentation with style and technique, and Zorach successfully integrated color strategies then being developed in Paris into her own style. Upon her return to the United States, Thompson actively promoted Modernism with avant-garde writers and artists in New York and New England.
Her style developed and included more Cubist structure until she turned to creating embroidered tapestries after the birth of her two children. While she continued to paint and assist her husband, William Zorach, on larger projects, her main focus was on these tapestries. She completed two WPA murals for the Fresno post office.
