Barbara Chase-Riboud. Untitled. 1967

Barbara Chase-Riboud Untitled 1967

  • MoMA, Floor 3, 3 North The Philip Johnson Galleries

In this drawing, Chase-Riboud weaves tendrilous lines and atmospheric shading into an intricate net of lights and darks. In its reconciliation of these seemingly opposite qualities, this work echoes the dynamic materiality of her large-scale sculptures, which combine such diverse materials as silk and metal. She has also incorporated fiber elements into her sculptures, spurred on by a suggestion from Sheila Hicks, who was Chase-Riboud's classmate at Yale University.
