FERAHAN, West Central Persian
4' 3" x 6' 11"
130cm x 211cm
("New Arrivals Gallery") This enrapturing, extremely finely crafted example of freehand Ferahan drawing exhibits the qualities that the best, early Persian town rugs share--an aesthetic fluidity between floral and village weaving that is extremely alluring, imbued with both delicacy and strength. Through a reflective, quartered composition, this quite original rug seems to depict an extreme closeup of a flourishing, energetic garden in full bloom. The compact central flower is a shape not repeated, allowing the other foliage to unfold around it without conveying a rigid symmetry. Gentle compression at the bottom opens just enough at the top to capture the never repeating quality of nature, with large curling leaves naturalistically individual. Its lively main border continuing the painterly balance and sumptuous variety of colors in the field.
