The Persian Carpet Tradition : Six Centuries of Design Evolution, Hardback Book

The Persian Carpet Tradition : Six Centuries of Design Evolution Hardback

Hardback

Description

Between 1400 and 1500 a design revolution in Persia swept away a 2000-year-old tradition of carpet design, replacing abstract geometric patterns with complex floral scrolls dominated by a central medallion derived from the Chinese cloud-collar shape.

This revolution represents a major event in world art history, comparable to that which occurred at the same time in Renaissance Italy.

It was followed over the next four centuries by a second revolution, during which the principal design elements of the first permeated carpet production at every level throughout Persia and continue to dominate it to this day.
