Quilt

Baton Rouge native Anna Williams, a self-taught quilter, was considered one of the twentieth century’s most significant fiber artists. Her freehand, improvisational designs and African American aesthetic were seen as freeing influences by other quilters. This quilt was made in 1995, with various textiles.
