Textile, Toned Rectangles

This is a Textile. It was created by Richard Landis.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Richard Landis as part of Color Decoded: The Textiles of Richard Landis.

Its medium is mercerized cotton double weave.

This serene and elegant composition is deceptively complex. Every rectangle in this seemingly simple checkerboard pattern is a slightly different tone and hue—a fully developed color range of remarkable depth and delicacy.

We have 1 video that features Textile, Toned Rectangles.
