MOHTASHAM KASHAN, Central Persian
7' 9" x 10' 0"
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
("Best-of-its-Type Sold in 2019”) The finest Mohtasham Kashans, such as this, are extraordinary, finely crafted antique rugs that exhibit an ever-new approach to this tradition pattern language and unfathomable care in its execution. Set deep within the field, an elongated reserve holds a medallion of precisely placed flowers that surround its prismatic center. Magnificently controlling a huge, diversified hierarchy of forms in terms of size, each outlying zone reflects a virtuoso balance between the scale and coloration of its elements within and the zones to either side, achieving a completely dazzling work. The exact saturation of red rose field creates an unusually gracious warmth for this style, inviting a relaxed enjoyment of its splendiferous display.
