Whimsical in nature, the exuberant application of color captures a quality of spontaneity and experimentation in this captivating tapestry. An ode to the Netherlands, Appel’s home, one senses his identity in his bold artistic statement. While we cannot pinpoint the exact nature of these figures, Appel prompts us to search for hidden meanings within his colorful lines and patches of bold color.

Created c. 1970, this hand-woven synthetic fiber tapestry has the woven signature 'Appel’ in the lower right corner in black.
