Marianne Richter was born in 1916 in Helsingborg, Sweden and died in November 2010 in Mölle, Sweden. She was a Swedish textile artist.
Richter went to the Technical School in Stockholm. After some time at “Hemslöjden” in Växjö, she was asked by Barbro Nilsson, the artistic director at Märta Måås-Fjetterströms studio in Båstad, to start working there.
Her major production consists mainly of carpets in different textile techniques, such as rya, floss and tapestry. The “rya” carpets "Kolmården" and "Sommargyllen" were very popular made at Wahlbeck's factories in Linköping. The Swedish embassy in Brazil was decorated in 1974 with Richter's weaving scales. She made a large tapestry for the United Nations House in New York that has unfortunately been destroyed, partly due to flame retardants.
Marianne Richter has also made textile printing, including duck patterns with birds and ceramic objects. In recent years, Richter made soft dolls of different sizes with painted, lacquered faces with rosy cheeks and quirky facial expressions. Marianne Richter died in Mölle in November 2010. Richter is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.
