Draped Sheet?

sheet draped over a board or a painted sheet painted onto a board to appear to be a sheet draped over a board.

I was in Waterstones, looking in the back of the shop towards the downstairs cafe (currently closed because of COVID-19).

I spotted something that could either have been a sheet draped over a board or a painted sheet painted onto a board to appear to be a sheet draped over a board.

It made me think of an exhibit at the V&A that Tamara and I saw once. It was a decorator’s table with a half-smoked cigarette draped over the edge of the table, and a mug or a cup on the table with some decorator’s tools. Except it was all ceramic.

Was it art? Tamara were of the opinion that it was craft. Nicely done, but if there is an artistic statement there it was made by Marchel Duchamp in 1917.

Still, the sheet or painted sheet interested me, so I went closer to look.

The image above is the final version I made after running the photo through a BeCasso app filter and then pulling it into shape in Photoshop and tidying up the colours.

Then here below is the original iPhone photo. And as you can see it is just a sheet hanging over a blue board.
