About this artwork

Roberto Burle Marx, a modernist renowned for his landscape designs, worked in a variety of media, including textile design. The harmony of color, texture, and form in this tapestry parallels his landscapes. To unify a garden, Burle Marx paired and grouped plants of varying scales and textures to produce contrast and balance. Like the elements in a garden, the forms in this textile invite the viewer to meander through the composition and contemplate the relationships between color, texture, and form.
