The Art of Fashion

Art meets fashion in this stylish interpreta- tion of Sam Francis’s 1956 abstract Composition: Yellow and Red, on exhibit at the Bechtler
Sam Francis, Composition: Yellow and Red, ca. 1956,

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s mid-century modernism exhibit is in full swing, now through August 27. Here, pairing two of our favorite disciplines—art and fashion—we take inspiration from Sam Francis’s bold use of color in his 1956 abstract watercolor and gouache, Composition: Yellow and Red, to offer a modern, stylish translation.
