Beautiful Square Size Vintage Modernist Scandinavian Mondrian Design Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavia, Circa Date: Late 20th Century – This is a wonderfully plush vintage mid century modern carpet which pays homage to the roots of the Modern Art movement. The movement itself began in the first half of the 20th century and its impact still reverberates throughout the art world.
A square background of creamy off white showcases a diamond of color in the spirit of Piet Mondrian’s iconic abstract art – think “Broadway Boogie-Woogie” by Artist Piet Mondrian.
Rich black lines outline solid cinder-block-like chunks of beautiful and vibrant colors. These broken black lines create a sense of play between the foreground and background of this artistic Scandinavian rug. This is mostly due to the white squares were left “open” to blend into the larger foreground area.
Piet Mondrian searched for a universal beauty in art and expressed it in his paintings. Mondrian believed he had found a “Utopian Art” by using only primary colors, shades, geometric shapes and lines. Whether or not he was able to achieve this lofty goal, his influence was huge. Without a doubt, Mondrian left an indelible mark on design, architecture, fashion and art.
Though this magnificent square size rug was made some sixty years after the Modern Art movement began. It is a celebration to the monumental point in time of the art movement.
This is one truly remarkable piece of textile art. As such, this breathtaking square size modernist Scandinavian Mondrian design rug can also be hung and enjoyed as a phenomenal and decorative wall hanging tapestry rug.
