Why this is a
Masterpiece

This creative work goes beyond the usual rug production. It is evident that the woman who made it was a real artist which Henri Matisse (1869-1954) could appreciate. The rug makes an original or even magical impression. Its value from a collector´s point of view is well above the average because the tradition is not only simply taken over but deliberatively developed. Single parts show landscape with mountains. The colours are quite restrained, however, that makes the whole impression even more distinctive.

History of the Object
The kilim originally belonged to the collection of Henri Matisse, a remarkable painter. He gave it to his friend. Motifs of this rug indicate how inspiring Asian art was for the work of the painter.
