This lightweight, limited edition beach towel features Kehinde Wiley’s 2012 painting 'Mrs. Waldorf Astor,' reimagined from John Singer Sargent’s 1908 painting of the same title.
In collaboration with Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director of Givenchy at the time, Wiley’s model is enrobed in a custom-made white dress. A nearly identical composition to its 20th century counterpart, the background is flattened with plant tendrils, entwining around the models body and into the foreground.
Kehinde Wiley is a 2001-02 Studio Museum in Harlem Artist-in-Residence Alumni.
50% Turkish Cotton/50% Polyester, 32 × 72 in.
