Large V’Soske Hand Tufted Wool Carpet “Persian Carpet”

This rug, Persian Garden” is a modernist interpretation of the traditional Garden themed Persian rugs. Each of the tourguise and sherbert green circles is raised above the pale gray-green background. Stanislav V’Soske introduced hand-tufted, hand-carved rugs to the U.S. in the mid-’20s, and his Michigan-based firm produced pieces with the integrity of fine art. In 1942 he worked with New York’s Museum of Modern Art on a landmark show of floor coverings by artists, among them Stuart Davis and Arshile Gorky. Upon V’Soske’s death in 1983, The New York Times referred to him as the “dean of American rug design.”
