Stripes and checks

Behind the scenes

Adding labels to the works in our collection – so that you know what a painting depicts, describes or evokes – continues full steam ahead while we are closed.

One of the features we are including is patterns and shapes, which can bring works together that otherwise appear to have very little in common. Here for example is a screenshot of works that have nothing in common except their stripiness:


And the same with checks:


We are about half way through adding these labels and we are currently working out the best way of browsing them. In the mean time, have a look at the STRIPES and CHECKER PATTERNS that we have found so far in our collection.
