Modern Artists Pollock, Motherwell and Albers vs. Moroccan Rugs – Over the years there have been many artists that changed the way we look at the world and art. The same can be said about antique and vintage rugs with one significant difference: Price. Since rugs have the same artistic value and impact as fine art, why do they cost a minute fracture of the price of a painting?

The answer is pretty simple. When a person buys a signed painting, they are not only paying for the artwork itself, they are paying for the history of the artist’s life. With rugs, people pay for the decorative value of a piece though often times the historical significance or provenance of an antique or vintage rug rival that of the finest painting. Natural logic would suggest that as rugs become more and more scarce, a spike in pricing will undoubtedly ensue.

For this simple reason many young collectors who can’t afford to pay millions of dollars for a good work of art are turning to the rug and textile world where prices are still well below their true artistic value.

Below you will find a comparison of paintings by some of the most renowned artists who were inspired by Moroccan rugs and, as you can see, the rugs are just as impressive as the paintings (some of the rugs might even be more captivating).

Some may argue that many of the great mid-century artists were inspired by vintage Moroccan rugs and based on the images below, it is easy to understand why. This simple fact would mean that the roots of the Modern Art movement might very well have originated in Morocco.
