Marguerite Stix

American, 1907-1975

Marguerite Stix was born in Vienna and although she was too young to be a member of the Wiener Werkstatte she nevertheless became a protege of Josef Hoffman at a very young age. She worked as a sculptor and artist in Vienna until she was forced to flee the German invasion of Austria in 1938. She fled to Paris where she began designing a line of ceramic pins and buttons. These became favorites of the Haute Couture houses of Molyneux, Balenciaga, Schiaparelli, Lanvin and Patou. In 1941, she was interred in a concentration camp in France. When she was released, she made her way to America. She had her first show as a sculptor in New York City in 1951, working in terra cotta and bronze. She began to make jewelry in the mid 1960's until her death in 1975. She had a solo exhibit at Cartier in 1972 and they continued to sell her jewelry.
