I’ve been admiring the work of Sarah Lipska (1882-1973), a Polish artist and textile designer who worked with Leon Bakst as a set and costume designer for the Ballet Russes.  She also worked as a fashion designer in Paris and as a sculptor, and it is quite rare to come upon examples of her work.  Lipska was known for a trademark whip stitching on her appliqué designs as well as abstract and Cubist-inspired patterns.  I am completely mesmerized by her work below, found on The Metropolitan Museum of Art database.
