(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“NEW ACQUISITION") Executed with extraordinary sensitivity, this consummately crafted Mohtasham Kashan rug possesses exquisite balance and formal drawing, rendered with dexterous, memorable color contrasts that are at once bold and tremendously nuanced. Its sublime coloration effortlessly juxtaposes evocative tones in unique ways, with light beige, indigo, and unusual, specially time-softened terracotta and periwinkle working in concert to animate the design. In addition to the stunning elongated medallion, cornerpieces as well are artistically erratic in their composition. Freefloating, amorphic inner motifs almost tribal in character insert folk art spontaneity into this Court rug's atmosphere of refinement. Learn About This Rug Type
