Masker (Masks) screen-printed furnishing cotton
Viola Gråsten for the Nordiska Kompaniet Textilkammare
Swedish, ca. 1957
64.5 x 50.25 in. (163.8 x 127.6 cm)
Allover pattern in red, black, and orange on white cotton with rows of zig-zag-edged squares enclosing halved irregular, rounded squares with circles and spots, evoking masks.

Condition: slight fading running vertically at the right side, probably due to use as a curtain.

A panel of this fabric was exhibited in "Decorative Arts of Scandinavia," Los Angeles County Museum of Art, February 20-March 20, 1957. A panel in a colorway of chartreuse and blue is now in that museum.
