20th Century Carpets /12 June 2015 12:00 am ct


Wright presents 20th Century Carpets, our second auction dedicated to woven masterpieces from around the world. While international in scope, this highly curated sale comprised of approximately 100 lots places special emphasis on western and modern designs.

From C.F.A.Voysey to Ivan da Silva Bruhns and Jules Leleu, the sale spans from the Arts and Crafts movement to Art Deco and beyond. Works by the innovative women of the Märta Måås-Fjetterström workshop feature prominently in the sale, with more than forty lots devoted to the finely woven designs by Marianne Richter, Barbro Nilsson and Märta Måås-Fjetterström herself. Finally, Moroccan carpets have influenced designers and interior decorators since before the 20th century and this sale presents more than twenty graphic rugs both neutral and vibrant in color.
