Prokop's meticulous history restores Jacques and Jacqueline Groag to their rightful places in the pantheon of Viennese Modernists.

Prokop explores their individual careers in Vienna and Czechoslovakia, their early collaborations in the 1930s, their lives as Jewish migr's, and the couple's unique contributions in Britain for postwar exhibitions, monuments, furniture and textile design, even a dress for future-queen Elizabeth II. Full color edition, supported by a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
