        • Fassett, Kaffe (American, 1937-) Portrait of Allan Willem - Oil Painting

          Fassett, Kaffe (American, 1937-) Portrait of Allan Willem - Oil Painting

          Est: $600 - $800

          Fassett, Kaffe (American, 1937-) Oil Painting. "Portrait of Allan." Allan was a dear friend of Kaffe Fassett. Fassett is a well-published and famous needlepoint, knitting and fabric artist. A copy of the book "Glorious Inspiration" by Kaffee Fassett is included with the painting. The painting is titled above the sitter's head "Allan Willem" and may depict the artist Allan Willem Lausen (1913-1984). Kaffe moved to England in 1964 and supported himself during that time by doing portraits in the US and in England. The oil on canvas painting is signed lower right Kaffe 64. In good condition. Unframed. Measures 40” x 30”. From kaffefassett.com: Kaffe Fassett was born in San Francisco in 1937. When he was 19, Kaffe won a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, but left after 3 months to paint in London. He settled in England in 1964. Kaffe ventured into the world of colourful yarn on a visit to a Scottish wool mill with fashion designer Bill Gibb. Inspired by the colours in the landscape, Kaffe was thrilled to find the same colours in yarns. He bought 20 colours of Shetland wool and some knitting needles, and on the train back to London a fellow passenger taught him how to knit. His first design appeared as a full page spread in Vogue Knitting magazine. Missoni and Bill Gibb commissioned Kaffe's early commercial collections, and his one-of-a-kind designs have been collected by Barbra Streisand, Lauren Bacall, John Schlesinger, Ali McGraw, Irene Worth, Shirley Maclaine, Helen Frankenthaler, Alan Bergman and H.R.H. Princess Michael of Kent. In 1985, Kaffe launched a needlepoint project on the TV programme 'Pebble Mill at One', inviting anyone across the country to needlepoint an image of their favourite thing, no bigger than 6 inches square. Over 2,600 entries were sent forming the Pebble Mill at One Heritage Tapestry which was on show at Chatsworth House until it moved to Harewood House. The same year, the British Crafts Council invited Kaffe to present a BBC daytime television series interviewing leading UK craftspeople. Since then Kaffe has inspired thousands of traditional one-colour knitters to employ rich palettes of colour through his 6 part television series, 'Glorious Colour' for Channel 4. The series was aired in 1986 has been repeated 3 times and was released as a two-part video. It has been shown in various countries including Japan and Canada. In 1998, Kaffe released 'Kaffe's Colour Quest', a video looking at colour and design inspiration through his worldwide travels. In February 1999, Kaffe presented a 6 part series for Radio 4 called 'A Stitch in Time'. Kaffe has also been interviewed countless times on national television and radio programmes such as 'Richard and Judy' for 'This Morning'; 'The Bazaar' TV series; 'Chelsea Flower Show Live'; 'Collectors Lot'; 'The Homes Show' and 'Through the Keyhole.' For radio: Radio 4's 'Woman's Hour' and 'Desert Island Discs' with Sue Lawley. In 1988 Kaffe became the first living textile artists to have a one man show at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The exhibition attracted such crowds that the Museum doubled attendance figures during the run and has since visited Finland, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Canada, USA and Iceland (where 5% of the total population attended.) Recent exhibitions of textiles include the American Museum in Bath (UK), Sweden, Denmark, America and Japan. The Hankyu Department Store, Osaka, Japan invited Kaffe to create 3 room sets in their store, for a British fair, sponsored by the British Council. Over 30,000 people visited the display in 6 days. In June 1998, Kaffe displayed his quilts from his 8th book, 'Patchwork' at the Japan World Quilt Fair in Tokyo. Kaffe's first needlepoint design was commissioned by Pamela Lady Harlech for Lord Harlech. Since then, commissions include; two 5-foot square needlepoint tapestry designs for the 1994 Marks & Spencer department stores Christmas packaging; tufted rug designs for Christopher Farr Hand Made Rugs; two 5-foot square needlepoint tapestries for the Sea Princess cruise liner; a needlepoint tapestry for an Elizabethan house in Yorkshire; a series of five tapes
