Carpets of the Art Deco Era, Hardback Book

Carpets of the Art Deco Era Hardback

Description

The design revolutions of the early 20th century were woven into the very fabric of the carpets and rugs of that era.

Carpets of the Art Deco Era, previously published as Art Deco and Modernist Carpets and now reissued in PLC, is the first in-depth history on the subject.

It charts the evolution of carpet design out of the floral effusions of the Victorian salons and into the angular elegance of Art Deco and bold abstraction of Modernism popularized by the machine age.

Such artists and designers as Picasso, Poiret, Gray, Delaunay, Matisse, Klee, and many more advanced the designs going on underfoot, making these rugs extremely collectible artworks in their own right.

Generously sized and beautifully illustrated with over 250 colour photographs, here are Art Deco carpets at their most glorious.
