BAKSHAISH CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
9' 10" x 14' 6"
300cm x 442cm
Exhibiting the unaffected artistry for which 19th-century Bakshaish carpets are so highly prized, this collectible carpet expresses why Bakshaish has become the carpet of choice of a growing number of art collectors. Within a reserve given over to the natural luminosity of pure camelhair, an abstract latticework of prolific wild-flowering vinery are invigorated by luscious tones of burnished coral, cerulean, sage green, and royal blue. Its warm earth tone palette, dexterous abrash, and carefully integrated color shifts establish a dynamic current of asymmetry exert a magnetic appeal. The layering of each delicate botanic form adds tremendous depth and movement to the composition looking as though rustled by a gentle breeze. Revealing its village weavers' freeform, playful spontaneity, floating florets of varying shape and shade live between the interconnected verdure. Its condition is magnificent considering its significant age.
