American painter Robert Ryman made many of his quiet, introspective paintings on biscuit toned backdrops, colored with the same warm, comforting neutral of NEW SAFARI Linen. He interrupted these backgrounds with jarringly fresh shades of arctic white, sometimes skidding like an accident across the picture plane, other times neatly ordered into fenced off squares.
A leading painter of 1960s New York, Ryman straddled a middle ground between the painterliness of Abstract Expressionism and the white, pristine order of Minimalism, combining visceral, tactile mark making with order, repetition and a limited color range of white, beige and brown. “There is never a question of what to paint,” he wrote, “but only how to paint.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

I am replicating a military-style outfit (think early 1900's British Army) and the "New Safari" color is the perfect khaki color. Add in the texture of the weave and the benefits of linen, I cannot wait to get started using this fabric!

Absolutely love this fabric. Beautiful light khaki color, nice drape, not very slubby. I made some loose summer pants.
