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.
