Windows of the Wedding Mug Set x Faith Ringgold

Normale prijs £52.00

This set of two complimentary mugs depicts African American artist Faith Ringgold's works Windows of the Wedding #1: Woman (1974) and Windows of the Wedding #2: Breakfast in Bed (1974).

Faith Ringgold's paintings shifted in the 1970s from traditional oils to her first un-stretched works bordered with pieced fabric.

The Window of the Wedding series is one of her earliest un-stretched fabric paintings, inspired by Tibetan Buddhist thangkas, paintings on silk and hung from wood dowels, that she encountered on a visit to Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in the summer of 1972.

The abstract works were done in collaboration with her mother, Willi Posey, a fashion designer.

Created in fine bone china, these are delicate in touch and feel, a perfectly personal indulgence or a beautiful gift.
