This quite innovative carpet's elemental quality captures the artistic freedom and rustic sensibility of this style that has gained an international following of connoisseurs. Constructed nearly 160 years ago when the Bakshaish folk art tradition was unencumbered by market constraints, this large room-size rug achieves a skillful dimensionality and a mesmerizing artistic fluidity. The softly undulating copper tone and even more deeply variegated blue in the corners masterfully adds drama. Demonstrating remarkably casual and confident drawing, various tendrils float in the field while an expressive rosette and oak leaf pattern meanders. In exceedingly good condition, this singular piece reaches nearly 15 feet and is unusually wide at 11-1/2 ft.
