Beautiful Scandinavian Vintage Ege Art Line Rug After Denis Brown, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavia Rug, Circa Date: 1997 – This magnificent vintage Ege art line rug, titled “Dance”, is based on the beautiful art work of Dublin, Ireland calligraphy artist Denis Brown.
Crimson red and varying shades of gray are the main colors used in this vintage Scandinavian rug, and they contrast beautifully with each other.
The clandestine aspect of the calligraphy is created by the black scrawls of haphazard handwriting that is sketched against the red background. The fascinating writing appear to be almost legible but only in a faintly distinguishable way. This puzzling script adds a fascinating and mysterious dimension to the overall artistic impact. In addition, the supporting elements of the overall design work, brilliantly work off the writings to create a visual effect that is powerfully engrossing.
Each corner of the vintage rug’s design is sketched with silver, red, and black tendrils that are swept across a beautiful gray tone. This combination creates an imagery that is reminiscent of billowing clouds of smoke or the evidence of a looming storm in the sky.
These silver tendrils carry over into the crimson red area of the artistic carpet’s illustration, causing this central section to appear as if is peeking from behind the billowing gray puffs. This unique contrast and beautiful juxtaposition also has the effect of making the red background somewhat ill defined with its warped edges.
In one’s imagination, it could be an old letter that was shredded on all sides, only retaining its mysterious cursive handwriting.
Upon first glance, the most prominent aspect of the design of this vintage Ege Art Line rug is the strange penmanship. The natural instinct is to attempt to read it, but it is an elusive effort that captivates the eye and keeps the observer fascinated for quite some time.
The overall visual impact of this magnificent vintage Ege Art Line rug is one of sophisticated and enchanting charm. It will add a mystifying and captivating elegance to any interior design setting.
