Lars Gyning was a Swedish artist who was once a designer for the famous Aubusson textile works in France’s Creuse region. Many of his pieces were created as tapestries for the wall. This piece was created in the 1980’s and is signed by the artist. You will also notice the stylized PF in the lower left corner. This is the mark of Pinton Freres, the director of one of the Aubusson tapestry works at the time. Gynning began creating designs for them in the early 1940’s.

The name of this piece is “Gryning,” which is Swedish for “dawn” or “morning light.” This rug is in the colors of the rising sun and was undoubtedly inspired by a sunrise captured on a beautiful morning. Gynning’s works are considered modern abstracts and are often easy to recognize by the style.
