alan davie, textile artist, primitive textile

This wool tapestry by Alan Davie (shown cropped above) is a jewel among a handful of “Interiors” auctions containing carpets and textiles at Christie’s this month. Davie’s short Wikipedia biography describes a very full artistic life happily outside the mainstream. And at 92 it sounds like he’s still going strong: “Davie is currently working on a 40 metre watercolour which he calls his great masterpiece. He has sworn that it will be complete before he dies.”
