Ethel Stein
Touch of Green, Contemporary Abstract Geometric Textile Wall Tapestry

2008

$10,000

About

Touch of Green, mercerized cotton, 31 1/2” x 36” x 1/4”, 2008. This tapestry was done by American textile artist, Ethel Stein (1917–2018). She worked primarily in weaving. Stein studied historical textile techniques using a microscope to see how the textile was formed and sketching the treads. She used these techniques, along with her knowledge of loom technology, to experiment to create new and different works. Her woven works included geometric abstract works and figurative images, using bright colors, muted colors and monochromatic black/grey/white. In Ikat, Stein created a technique that combined satin binding pattern with double ikat, such that the resist dyed warp and weft threads created a variation of color intensity, and the weft-based pattern created a higher contrast than traditional ikat weavings. Stein resurrected historical weaving techniques and merged them with 20th-century Bauhaus design sensibilities.
