Hanging (Italy)

This is a Hanging. It was made by S.I.R.E. Arte Feltro. It is dated 1925–28 and we acquired it in 1959. Its medium is wool and its technique is pieced and sewn (patchwork). It is a part of the Textiles department.

Fillìa was the adopted name of Italian Futurist artist Luigi Colombo. In the 1920s Futurists experimented across media to create “opera d’arte totale,” or a “total work of art.” They sought to conceive complete spaces and often used colorful indoor murals to soften the perceived coldness of modernist interiors.

This object was featured in our Object of the Week series in a post titled Patchwork Panel by Fillìa.

It is credited Gift of Mary G. Morrison.
