Description

Superb graphic weft faced Ewe women’s kente with a regular alternation of red and dark blue and white square blocks, each separated by narrow stripes. Alignment against adjacent strips varies slightly across the cloth giving a pleasing offbeat effect. While there is little evidence that Bauhaus weavers such as Anni Albers and Gunta Stolzl were influenced by cloths of this type the visual affinity is clear. Complete cloths in this style are scarce. Unusually we have both pieces from the original pair that would have been worn together. Price is for one. The cloths have just been cleaned by our conservator and are in excellent condition. Dates from circa 1920 – 1940.

Measurement: 86ins x 44, 219 cm x 113.
