Lenore Tawney’s Triune, a large tapestry woven in 1961, is a featured object on the Metropolitan Museum of Art Department of Textile Conservation’s Instagram (@textilesmet). Triune is also their eye-con (or profile photo) for the month of September.
This beautiful piece was one of forty weavings exhibited in Tawney’s first solo show at the Staten Island Museum in 1961. “There is an urgency that sweeps us up,” wrote painter, Agnes Martin, on that exhibition, “an originality and success that holds us in wonder.”
