About this title

Synopsis:

A richly illustrated study of glorious Art Deco and Modernist carpet designs, including work by major artists of the period

The revolutionary art and design of the early twentieth century produced textiles, particularly carpets, of extraordinary vitality. First the flourishing Art Deco movement spread bold patterns across Europe and America, before giving way to sophisticated Modernist abstractions influenced by Bauhaus, Cubism, and collage. In just a few decades carpet design was transformed into a showcase of the avant-garde, as legendary artists and designers such as Picasso, Poiret, Gray, Delaunay, and Klee created dazzling, influential works of art still valued greatly today.

Beautifully and extensively illustrated, Carpets of the Art Deco Era charts the evolution of carpet design during the period, celebrating the results of a particularly rich era in the decorative arts. An important visual survey for any textile arts shelf, this volume is now available again in a compact, accessible format. 250 photographs, 149 in color
