FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
3' 7" x 4' 10"
109cm x 147cm
Seasoned antique Persian carpet aficionados will recognize the skillful execution and exquisite cohesion that informs the highly innovative allover design of this truly unique 19th-century Persian rug. Such an inventive piece often makes an excellent candidate for hanging on a wall where, at eye level, even the uninitiated will find themselves engaged by its exuberance and hidden balance. Upon a soft ivory ground, this diminutive piece marries the symmetry of formal rugs with the joyful coloration, surprising color shifts, and geometricized drawing found most often in tribal carpets. The especially delicate rendering is given tremendously effective nuance by the fullest range of rare green tones, from rich forest green and teal to soft celadon and olive. A visible central axis provides an orientation across which the individual boughs and florets are book-matched with casual symmetry.
