These handcrafted nineteenth-century fabrics were woven from raffia palm fibers and used in dowries; the larger ones served as festive attire at funerals. In fact, these cloths are renown worldwide for being of high quality in both design and technical achievement. Kuba cloths had been shown in early African art shows in Paris that the famous modernist Matisse may have attended, and he owned several Kuba cloths in his collection. Matisse’s correspondence indicates their inspiration for the paper cutouts, such as the 1951 Snow Flowers, that were his final major works. After hanging panels of the Kuba textiles across his studio walls, Matisse wrote in letters to his sister that he often looked at them for long periods, waiting for something to come to him.
