Vintage Swedish Rya Rug, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – This outstanding vintage Rya rug from Scandinavia features an optically delightful pattern enhanced by dimensional shading that adds depth and texture to the abstract motifs – a technique that elevates this piece to the upper echelons of fine vintage rugs. Painterly veils of color, complex shaded details and subtle color variations capture the perpetual struggle and tension between dark and light using saturated hues that encompass both worlds. Ominous dark clouds with meandering edges and vaporous layers incorporate a complex spectrum of hues, including piercing yellows, obscure blacks, autumnal oranges and rusty reds. Translucent shading and veiled colors emphasize the luxurious texture and dimensional qualities of the plush Rya pile. This fascinating vintage Rya captures the duality of colors with smoky browns and obscure blacks that are juxtaposed against warm oranges and vibrant yellows that add levity to the composition and contrast the gravity created by the obscure dark colors.
