Blass was renowned for his precise tailoring, which is exhibited in this perfectly aligned and brilliantly constructed coat. Highly graphic, the design of this striking fabric is reminiscent of the sinuous lines in Art Nouveau. The fabric was custom-made for the coat; the addition of a placket that conceals buttons underneath allows the pattern to flow without interruption.

Mrs. Joyce Penido, Flintridge, California; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1991).
