Evelyn Ackerman Tapestries III

The 3rd and final round of Evelyn Ackerman tapestries.

 Autumn Leaves, c. 1959, handwoven wool. via reader Michele Holt (thanks Michele!)
Here is another version (rotated) of Autumn Leaves. via Reform Gallery

Two examples from the 1971 Campesina Series. via Sam Kaufman Gallery and Treadway. I have seen these dated as being from the early 60's, but Ackerman Modern has them listed as 1971, so I will go with that.

Canal, c. 1963, handwoven wool. via Reform Gallery

Duck (title unknown), handwoven. via Lions Gallery

This handwoven piece I spotted on eBay a couple of weeks ago depicting Adam and Eve looks very similar to Evelyn's work. Below is a hand-hooked version of the piece that is signed with an artist's cypher...hmm?
