Vintage Swedish Tapestry Rug, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-Century – This vintage Swedish tapestry rug showcases a tremendous expressionist work of art adapted in a luxurious textile format that maintains the painterly textures and brush-stroke details. The energetic composition of this vintage rug embodies expressionist principles with gripping colors, austere outlines and graphic designs that have an overpowering intensity. The clear porcelain white background is emblazoned with a natural combination of dramatically stylized birds, devious serpents and ambiguous egg-like roundels that are depicted in a surreal environment. Speckled feathers, fantastically feminine eyelashes and bright Caribbean-blue peaks give the birds a colorful personality that is juxtaposed against the dark inky black of the grinning serpents. This quirky, expressive tapestry rug has a bold presence and emotive characters that allow the viewer’s imagination to create a unique story. Emotion, drama and experiences are captured in this artful composition, which is energetic, modern and full of life.
