WOW! You have done an amazing job of spelling most of the early 20th century artists' and designers' names phonetically. Props to you!
It's sites like this that make me nuts--badly and inacurately redrawn undated images, dubious history (the twist in the 1950's??) etc. If the point of this site is education, you've failed miserably--if its just your "passion", please have enough respect for the work of these artists to at least spell their names correctly.
