Masterpieces & Curiosities: A Russian American Quilt
The Jewish Museum
1109 5th Ave at 92nd St
New York, NY 10128
Originally owned by a Russian Jewish immigrant family, the quilt was assembled in America, incorporating panels probably embroidered in the Old Country. Its triangular pieces are aligned in a typical half-square pattern, but their random colors create a visual effect similar to that of a crazy quilt.
Masterpieces & Curiosities: A Russian-American Quilt is organized by Claudia J. Nahson, Morris and Eva Feld Curator. The series is organized by Jens Hoffmann, Deputy Director, Exhibitions and Public Programs, and Daniel S. Palmer, Leon Levy Assistant Curator.
