Vintage Verner Panton Textile, Country Of Origin: Denmark, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — This vintage textile art piece from renowned Danish furniture and interior designer, Verner Panton, features a characteristic “Kurve” pattern which is a reoccurring trademark design in the artist’s works. In eight evenly spaced lines, this sweeping brushstroke of a pattern creates a gradient of citrus-hued colors set against a solid orange background. Beginning in the center with a brilliant lemon yellow, the subsequent lines morph into a delightful range of burnt oranges and then conclude in the outermost lines with a sienna brown. The overall composition provides a sense of movement and fluidity. Verner Panton, who studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen, was most known throughout his extensive career for his modern, innovative and futuristic designs. Admittedly, Panton was inspired by 1960’s “Mod” style, which is an easily detectable influence in this textile given the use of an abstract, repeated pattern and how a single color is explored through multiple hues.
