Silhouette: The Art of Shadow

Gabriele Wilson Design, New York, New York, 2009

Description

It was thrilling to design with so many silhouettes in unexpected forms from the 18th to 20th centuries. The silhouettes were not just the expected Victorian paper cutouts but Etruscan vases—an enormous variety of paintings and carved moldings all revealing a rich history far beyond a 21st-century trend.

Juror Notes
