About the Item

78100 Vintage German Alice Koch-Gierlichs Tapestry with Abstract Expressionist Style 04'02 x 04'04. Showcasing a bold expressive design, incredible detail and texture, this hand woven wool Vintage German Alice Koch-Gierlichs tapestry is a captivating vision of woven beauty. The bold geometric pattern and lively colors woven into this vintage AKG tapestry work together creating a truly unique look. The abrashed field is covered in an all-over asymmetrical design comprised of amorphous organic shapes with a strong sense of dimensionality. The linear elements running from the top the bottom generate movement within the piece, drawing the viewer in to an alternative reality. Color blocks and striations run across the width in beautiful, elegant gradations. Drawing inspiration from Helen Frankenthaler, Karl Benjamin and Paul Cézanne, this vintage German wall hanging beautifully showcases balanced asymmetry recalling the spontaneity of abstract expressionism. Whether or not this style speaks to you depends on your response to uninhibited, raw, and abstract forms of art. Rendered in variegated shades of purple, lavender, amethyst, beige, gray, black, navy blue, sky blue, peach and yellow with other accent colors. Well-suited for fashion-forward homes, eclectic interiors, and a variety of styles: Abstract, Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, Postmodern, Memphis Design, Modern, Contemporary, Eclectic, Tribal, Boho Chic, Bohemian, Modern Mexican, Artisan, Lodge, Cabin, Rustic, Retro, Art Moderne, Mid-Century Modern, Hygge, Mys, Mysigt, Industrial, Urban, and Loft. Abrash. Hand-woven wool. Made in Germany. Measures: 04'02 x 04'04.
