The Hoffmeister Collection is one of the best and most extensive private collections of antique and historic Turkmen knotted carpets in Western Europe and America. It competes alongside important collections from Western museums as well as those in Russia and Turkmenistan. With almost 200 objects - among which are distinguished carpets and bags - artistic excellence and historical significance come together. As one of the first to do so, Hoffmeister has determined the age of these knotted works of the Turkmen with the aid of radio-carbon techniques. According to the results from the science and technology university ETH in Zurich, the earliest pieces of the collection originate from the sixteenth century.

Both the cultural significance of the collection and the scientific and artistic value of its pieces are discussed in this book. The readers can really sense the texture of these knotted wares through the brilliant photography, which carry them away on a journey into the lost world of the Steppes folk of Central Asia.

Book Description Arnoldsche Art Publishers Jun 2011, 2011. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Die Sammlung Hoffmeister ist eine der besten und umfangreichsten privaten Sammlungen antiker und historischer Turkmenen Knüpfteppiche in Westeuropa und Amerika. Sie kann sich mit bedeutenden Sammlungen westlicher Museen ebenso messen wie mit solchen in Russland oder Turkmenistan. In den fast 200 Objekten - darunter bedeutende Teppiche und Taschen - verbinden sich künstlerischer Rang und geschichtliche Bedeutung auf besondere Weise. Als einer der Ersten ließ Hoffmeister das Alter von Knüpfarbeiten der Turkmenen mit Hilfe des Radiocarbon-Verfahrens bestimmen. Das Ergebnis der ETH Zürich: Die frühesten Stücke der Sammlung stammen aus dem 16. Jahrhundert. In der Publikation werden sowohl die kulturelle Bedeutung der Sammlung als auch der wissenschaftliche und künstlerische Wert ihrer Stücke erörtert. Brillante Aufnahmen der Objekte lassen den Leser die Textur dieser Knüpferzeugnisse förmlich spüren und entführen ihn auf eine Reise in eine heute versunkene Welt der Steppen-Völker Zentralasiens. 192 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.
