This lightweight, limited edition towel features Kehinde Wiley’s 2008 painting Sleep, reimagined from Jean-Bernard Restout’s 1771 painting of the same name.
With luminously painted skin, draped in funerary-like cloth with his feet crossed atop a wooden plank, Wiley personifies his model to reflect the theological narratives permeating throughout his oeuvre.
Kehinde Wiley is a 2001-02 Studio Museum in Harlem Artist-in-Residence Alumni.
50% Turkish Cotton/50% Polyester, 32 × 72 in.
