This textile reflects the abstracted patterning popular in Vienna before the First World War and persisting into the early 1920s. After its inclusion in the 1925 Paris exposition, this panel traveled with the subsequent exhibition of works from the fair and was acquired by the Cleveland Museum of Art in 1926.
