(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This carpet presents the most individually expressive and cheerfully colored example we have ever seen of this style. A standout from a tradition that became renowned for its jewel-toned, exacting precision, here the design exudes a commitment to spontaneity. Lively rose reds and striations of marine blue support this artistic shift. Notable are the medallions' contours and their central ornaments, the difference in “foliage” between the two tree forms, and the sense of expansion and compression happening in the main border. This is a superb example of the Caucasian ability to imbed enormous innovation in an overall creation of harmony. Learn About This Rug Type
