Offers invited: Grotesque Figures by Tadek Beutlich

I am inviting expressions of interest in this unique ‘Off the Loom’ textile handwoven by textile artist and printmaker Tadek Beutlich MBE. It was bought by my mother, textile artist Fay Hankins who was Tadek’s studio manager and assistant during his years at Gospels in Ditchling. Fay paid £500 for it at the Beutlich exhibition, for which I curated the textiles in Ditchling in 2017, but Tadek’s widow Ellen immediately asked me to reimburse Fay when she heard this and then gifted it to her.
It was chosen by my mother after Ellen told me that this was the one piece that Tadek always had hanging in his studio, wherever he moved. Fay remained lifelong friends with Tadek and Ellen from the time they met in 1967. Sadly this year (2023) both my mother Fay and Ellen passed away within a few months of each other. I am now selling this piece on behalf of my mother’s estate.
It is esparto grass wrapped with wool and is called 'Grotesque Figures'. Size of textile 58cm high by 38cm wide excluding hanging piece
