Art Deco Rug, France, mid-century – Adapted from Picasso’s legendary dove line drawings, this evocative French art carpet is a larger-than-life representation of peace, and a testament to the beauty of vintage carpets. Using his unique, expressive style, Picasso depicts a powerful ideal using the most delicate motifs to turn art into a positive, even political, statement. The minimalist composition incorporates a sumptuous ecru ground with linear accents that frame the achromatic feature like a formal picture mat. Picasso’s iconic dove of peace is juxtaposed against an amorphous female face topped by a quirky olive branch. This stunning vintage art carpet is an iconic depiction of peace that uses thematic motifs to express an advanced idea in a contemporary and easily understandable manner. The plush textile adaptation of this iconic line drawing captures the artist’s fluid style and expressive nature while representing an undying concept.
