The Windows of the Wedding was Ringgold’s first series of completely abstract paintings. She describes them as representative of a prayer rug; something that couples could meditate every morning and evening to promote health and happiness. The series consists of 20 “Windows”. Each title has something to do with weddings or marriage. The two works featured in this show are “Fathers” and “Friends”.
