The Claremont II Caucasian Tribal Rug Collection
We are delighted to offer a rich selection of antique rugs from the Caucasus Mountains in an easily accessible new web gallery. This dynamic group of tribal rugs comes at a time when The Financial Times acknowledged, "the collecting of rugs as works of art is experiencing a renaissance" (2-27-10).
The best Caucasian art rugs have long enthralled connoisseurs with joyful color palettes and enigmatic geometric patterns, and also inspired important Western Art Modernists. For instance, their elemental, angular forms were a precursor to the abstract art of Klee and Kandinsky. Gauguin was deeply affected by tribal rugs’ inventive use of color.
The finest rugs of the Caucasus encompass an abundance of graphic design styles and rich color palettes that lend themselves to a broad range of home decors. Each piece is an individually inspired work of art. Our collection provides a gateway to this rarely found level of Caucasian rugs. They are creations of highly dexterous weavers who reinvigorated the centuries-old symbolic patterns of their tribal groups.
For nearly two decades, Claremont II has worked with lovers of folk art to greatly enhance the ambiance of their homes or offices. Many are also choosing to enjoy these collectible rugs as art for the wall. We invite you to discover the great satisfaction of living with the timeless beauty of these deeply moving works of art.
