Item Description

Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, Mid 20th Century - Created during the height of Scandinavian mid-century design, this radiant Scandinavian rug is decorated with a cubist color wash that features a stunning convergence of right angles, parallel elements and divergent avenues that highlight the perspective of the oblique lines and geometric intersections. The paradoxical composition utilizes defined compartments, chevron stripes and oblique angles that trail off to a distant vanishing point. Narrow end pieces and parallel borders enclose the glowing ray of light that occupies the field. Textural variegation incorporating autumnal oranges and warm browns paired with luminous lemon yellows and soft maize-colored details create a mottled pattern that accentuates the softly colored cells and complementary sunshine-yellow color scheme. This unique mid-century rug has levity, sophistication and a cheery visage incorporating bold yellow, orange and sun-baked brown.

Märta Måås-Fjetterström at Deconet

Märta Måås-Fjetterström Märta Måås-Fjetterström started her own textile studio in Båstad, Sweden in 1919 after years as manager of a weaving school run by the Swedish Handicraft Association. She drew designs for rugs and curtains which were woven by women in the district. Originally she worked in a romantic and nationalistic tradition with elements of art nouveau design. But her contacts with folk art in Southern Sweden and her study of Oriental rugs helped her to develop a style of her own that was unique in the world. Her designs are based on native Swedish and Oriental textile traditions combined with a skilled eye for natural forms. Like the great Swedish botanist Linnaeus she studied flowers and leaves in detail, while the occasional horse or sheep also finds its way into her designs, giving a special rhythm to the patterns. In 1934, when she had passed her sixtieth year, she made her definitive breakthrough among Sweden's art critics with a major exhibition at the Liljevalch art gallery in Stockholm. Today, Märta Måås-Fjetterström's works are found in the world's leading museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Louvre in Paris and the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.
