European Modernist rug BB8031 7'10" × 9'10" $18,000
An European modernist rug hand knotted in Mid-20th Century. The modernist artists attempted to depart from traditional forms of art, which they considered outdated. This rug is a fine example of the era. It features a bold all-over abstract design in shades of brick, pink, beige, black, green and a bit of turquoise.
Art Deco is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I. The Art Deco movement led to a fast evolution of the rug and textile design, among other art forms. Rug design evolved from traditional floral and highly ornamental to a style of angular elegance with geometric, abstract and modern figurative motifs. The design is frequently spare, geometric, and architectural. The rugs created during this period remain elegant and refined to this day.
