Marlow Moss. White with Rope. 1940

Marlow Moss White with Rope 1940

  • MoMA, Floor 5, 512 The David Geffen Wing

The off-white monochrome White with Rope substitutes texture for color in order to create tension in the composition. The rope at once blends with the canvas and distorts perception of the grid through its three-dimensional presence.
