This dazzling cloth is composed of narrow, individually woven strips that are sewn together. The visual effect of such textiles may be likened to African music and jazz, which has its roots in African rhythms. For example, this cloth exemplifies the visual offbeat phrasing, syncopation and complex rhythms created by the irregular alignment of colored rectangles.
Purchase through Alan D. Frank, Fair Lawn, New Jersey; purchased by the Indianapolis Museum of Art 20 December 1984.
