Title   Mossant
Date Of Work   1938
Dimensions   46.5" x 63"
Notes   Mossant. Original. Linen backed. Excellent condition. This design featuring three hand-held hats appears so deceptively simple one is tempted to feel that there's nothing to it; yet, the careful, rhythmic composition creates a pattern so upbeat that it gives the product an unmistakable class. The Mossant firm, in existence since the 1860s, was known for high-quality hats--especially men's hats, whose expensive models were made from pile of rabbit and hare--and Cappiello conveys it perfectly, making it look easy in the bargain. The company closed in 1981. [PAI-XXXVIII, 228]
