Vintage French Tapestry by Georgette Owens 48058
This carpet is effectively divided into three positions, as a triptych. This medieval trend combined with the unmistakable mid-century vibrancy of the carpet makes it a compelling and exciting example.
Vintage French Tapestry by Georgette Owens, France, Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a dynamic and energetic vintage carpet – a mid-century piece designed by artist Georgette Owens. Practically bursting with dynamism, this exciting composition is evocative of the abstract expressionist movement – a mid-twentieth century development in the art world that began in New York City and was felt around the world. Stressing the beauty and complexity of the abstract over the concrete, the abstract expressionists pioneered a style in which bold splashes of color serve as the primary focus of a work. What one gets out if it is up to that individual, and not to the artist. In this beautiful mid-century carpet, a veritable explosion of colors – reds, oranges, yellows, blues, and many more – are arranged in a careful manner, in which each color ends as another begins. Further, composition-ally, this carpet is effectively divided into three positions, as a triptych. This medieval composition combined with the unmistakable mid-century vibrancy of the carpet makes it a compelling and exciting example.
