Banner Proposal

December 29, 2011

Bolton would no doubt be annoyed that I include this gouache image on illustration board. Sorry, Bo!

These designs, dating I think to the 1950s, were for a series of four banners with the theme “We Build With Christ” and were to have been executed in appliqué embroidery, a medium he took to high art with his later series for the 1976 Eucharistic Congress. I do not believe these were ever executed. Do click on the image for a closer view that included his notes on each design.
