One of our very talented clients made this needlepoint based on artwork by Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943). Taeuber-Arp was a prolific artist, textile designer, furniture and interior designer, and architect who was involved in the Dada movement during the early 20th century. After blocking and stretching the piece, we presented them in a matte white mouldings from Studio, matting from Decor and Tru Vue Ultra Vue glass.
Just look at that sweet face! We love this photograph of our friend Bruno so much – he looks as happy as a clam with sand between his toes!
