This is a Textile. It was designed by Richard Landis. We acquired it in 1977. Its medium is linen, polyester and its technique is double cloth, each layer 2/2 twill. It is a part of the Textiles department.
Richard Landis, an artist-weaver known for his rigorous color studies, used six thread colors to create a spectrum of 21 shades, each of which appears systematically across the full range of graduated rectangles that form the “windows” in this upholstery fabric.
