I’m a bit late to the party on this one but am nonetheless interested to learn that renowned contemporary painter Kenneth Noland (1924-2010) collaborated with Navajo weavers to create a series of his graphic and colorful works as tapestries. The Textile Museum featured some of these pieces in an exhibition last year and they are also featured in the book Gloria F. Ross & Modern Tapestry. Above, Arizona Sky designed by Noland and woven by Mary Lee Begay.

And, following one keyword to another, the World’s book announcement led me to this very interesting article by Artes Magazine on Ascher scarves. The scarf pictured above features a design by Francoise Gilot, produced by Ascher circa 1947.
