True Art: Fabric Form

I came across these photos of famous artists' works on textiles.  I wonder if they're still available anywhere?

I'd use this as a cushion fabric on the banquette in the eat-in kitchen.  (The kitchen in my French summer cottage, you know, the one in my dreams...)
Pablo Picasso ‘The Rooster’ for Fuller Fabrics, 1955

 This would make a really pretty lampshade for a little girl's room:
Marc Chagall ‘Belle Fleurs’ furnishing fabric for Fuller, circa 1956

 I could see this made into sweet outdoor pillows for your screened in porch at the lake house:
Andy Warhol ’Water Melons’ cotton textile for Fuller, circa 1956

 I'd love to see this as a shower curtain!:
Salvador Dali ’Spring Rain’ textile from Schiffer, 1949

 Hmmmmm..... (any ideas??)
Alexander Calder screen printed textile featuring circus acrobats, 1976

 I'd love to see this as a fabric headboard in a child's room:
John Rombola ‘Circus’ textile for Patterson Fabrics, 1956, and reissued as wallpapers by their sister companies Harben Papers and Piazza Prints

not sure for this one -- what do you think?

 I'd like a duvet cover made out of this:
Henri Matisse ’Echarpe No. 1’, silk square design for Zika Ascher,1947

Double hanging pendants - drum shades- in a powder room in a loft:
Eduardo Paolozzi ’Barkcloth’ for his own company Hammer Prints, 1954

 Throw pillows; little girl's bed:
John Rombola ’Cat and Canary’ for Patterson/Harben papers, 1959

Floor cloth:
Angelo Testa screen-printed furnishing textile, circa 1947

 I'd like a skirt made out of this:
Vincent Malta ’Carnivale’ fashion fabric for Lowenstein, 1954

Tuesdays rock, don'tcha know?  Have a great one!
