Evelyn Ackerman Hard-Edge Textile Art Tapestry

$6,000

About

A great California design. This was recently acquired from the estate of Jerome and Evelyn Ackerman. She made this as a bed cover. It was being used in her home. I saw the potential in saving this piece as a unique work of art and design. It was dry cleaned gently, but the stains did not come out. FYI, the colors appear to be a little darker in the photos but are not in person. They are a little softer / lighter. For example, the black is actually a charcoal grey. It's the same color in the photo with the grey stitched diamond. Minor details. It has an amazing design palette / aesthetic and provenance. (Here daughter said to me "I remember it very well".) It can be hung in any direction....
