Vintage Ecuadorian Rug by Edward Gerber, Origin: Ecuador, Circa: Mid-20th Century – This dynamic and exciting mid-century modern Ecuadorian rug, attributed to noted artist Edward Gerber, is a great example of abstract design. A pale cream field is the setting for the action: a jumble of highly stylized human-like figures of bright primary colors, locked in perhaps a deep struggle or an even deeper embrace. A composition that would look no less at home on the walls of a major contemporary art museum than on the floor of a meticulously decorated room, this unique, modern piece is both eye-catching and provocative at the same instant. The crowd of implied human figures that populate the center of the piece – each either a bright red, yellow, blue, or black – may speak to difficult issues of human togetherness or cooperation. Or they may speak to the opposite idea: to humanity’s shared destiny. When an abstract work such as this stunning vintage composition from Ecuador asks such questions without overly asking them, perhaps it is serving its primary function as a work of art. A beautiful vintage rug that is sure to bring a splash of color and modernity to any home, this wonderful work by Edward Gerber is a truly exceptional vintage rug.
