Bold Backdrop

Bold Backdrop

1920-1940
Art Deco/Art Moderne

This deep gray provides a stylish note in the master bedroom of the Gropius House where it works particularly well as the backdrop to the brilliant red of a 19th-century Iraqi woven wall hanging. The wall hanging, acquired by a partner of Walter Gropius as partial payment for a project in Baghdad, is one of several textiles bartered for his firm's design work when cash payments could not be taken out of that country. The color would work on an accent wall behind any bold and colorful artwork in a late 1930s or early 1940s interior.
