Sculpture: painted cast paper
4 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches
Date: N.D.

Barbara Schwartz was generally associated with the pattern and decoration movement of the 1970s, which produced bright and complex abstract patterns in reaction to the stark and impersonal nature of minimalist art, which was stripped down to its most fundamental forms.

She sought to further enliven abstraction by giving it three-dimensional form and linking it to non-Western sources. This small cast paper piece, made spefically for the Vogels, is handcrafted and brightly hued.
