Title:
Anatolian Kilim Fragment, Central Anatolia
Size:
29” x 107” (73 x 271cm)
Circa:
1850
Cat. #:
380
Description:

Although a fragment, enough remains to convey the high level of artistry achieved by the whole.

 

Ever so fleetingly one is allowed a glimpse into a remote past.

 

Compositional vitality is achieved by the interdependence of superb color and irregularity of design.

 

The colors are from natural dye sources with a significant use of an 'old' apricot.

 

The piece has been professionally washed and mounted.

 

It can be 'read' both horizontally and vertically.

 

For what it is worth I think a horizontal display makes an especially dramatic wall hanging.

Structure:

Slit-tapestry.
