Red Square Shawl

This Red Square Shawl comes from the Brooklyn, New York studio of Laura Anderson Barbata. Born in Mexico City and based in New York, Laura Anderson Barbata was an Artist-in-Residence at the Gardner in 2016. During her residency, Barbata explored her passion for fabrics and textiles, producing a series of dresses, skirts, scarves, and necklaces inspired by the elaborate patterns seen on the walls of the Raphael Room and her project, Intervention: Raphael Red. 

The 52 inch square shawl is made of silk and features a complimenting red screen design evocative of the Raphael Room. This design was crafted exclusively for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
