Modern artists such as Warhol and Rauschenberg employed photo silk screens in their work, making art and industrial design more accessible for the home. Enormous plate glass windows for contemporary suburban homes and urban skyscrapers required new scale for domestic textile designs. In this case, a photographic image was transferred to a single large-scale silk screen over 2 metres tall.
