Vintage Inspired Joan Miro Tapestry Rug, Origin: Scandinavian Rugs, Circa: Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a unique and beautiful vintage carpet – a mid twentieth century composition featuring a decidedly modern composition, drawn in the style of the great Catalan artist Joan Miro. This fascinating Swedish rug is a compelling example. Exerting an outsized influence on the art world throughout his career, Miro is one of the more immediately recognizable and intriguing figures of the twentieth century. This charming vintage carpet beautifully communicates Miro’s unique style and idiom, which has a decidedly surrealist bent, albeit more playful than that of his contemporaries. A charming and simple ivory field is the setting for the action, in which a highly surreal figure, which is suggestive of a human figure, stands and stares off, bedecked in motley colors and supporting a large red ball. The lack of concrete ideas in this mid-century carpet is typical of modernist design, which often emphasizes the unorthodox and irregular. The effect of this misdirection compels audiences to closely study subjects, and to walk away from them with a deep appreciation for them.
