About Vera Neumann (American, 1907–1993)
The artist Vera Neumann had a following as varied as her products: First Lady Bess Truman selected Vera designs for the White House fabrics, and Marilyn Monroe draped herself in Vera scarves for her last photography shoot. She tagged many of her cheery designs with her iconic logo of a ladybug, which to Neumann symbolized happiness, perhaps the secret behind her success.
Her work is in the collection of The Costume Institute at The Met.
