Vintage Round Corneille Rug, Scandinavia, circa Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a unique and exciting vintage rug – a round rug that was woven in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century with an impressive and alluring composition designed by the inimitable artist Corneille. One of the most celebrated and greatest artists of the twentieth century, Corneille boasts an immediately recognizable style that is characterized by surreal experimentation as well as a vibrant color pallet. This delightful round rug, which measures just over seven feet in diameter, is a beautiful representation of Corneille’s style, featuring many of the design elements that make his work so unique and recognizable.
The abstract silhouette of a female human figure in blue rests on the righthand side of the work; elsewhere throughout the composition, birds and other human figures appear, each decidedly surreal in execution, and each intimately involved in the overall composition. The other colors that appear throughout the piece are intriguing, and contrast impressively with the deep blue tone that dominates the composition: bright yellows, pinks and greens, among others. This is a limited edition, 100% wool pile rug . It is in mint condition, no repair or restoration, the pile is even and full throughout and it could take daily traffic and use with no problem.
A truly unique and beautiful work, this vintage carpet by Corneille is an impressive carpet that beautifully showcases the style of an important twentieth century artist.
