Art Deco and Modernist Carpets by Susan Day

Book Description

The design revolutions of the early 20th century created carpets of extraordinary vitality, and this pioneering work of scholarship places these dazzling examples of textile art at centre state during an exciting period in the history of decorative arts. The fruits of the flourishing Art Deco movement, not just in France but throughout Europe and the USA, form the first part of the book, while in the second, the focus turns to the reaction against the artistes-decorateurs by the champions of Modernism, and such influences as the Bauhaus, Cubism and collage. In 1927, the critic Rene Chavance identified carpet production as the most successful of the decorative arts in achieving 'the more visionary aims of the times'. Susan Day's exceptional book proves that these wonderful designer carpets still strike us today with their decorative power.

Carpets of the Art Deco Era by Susan Day Carpets of the Art Deco Era, Hardback (March 2015)

The design revolutions of the early 20th century were woven into the very fabric of the carpets and rugs of that era. This book charts the evolution of carpet design out of the floral effusions of the Victorian salons and into the angular elegance of Art Deco and bold abstraction of Modernism popularized by the machine age.

Great Carpets of the World by Susan Day Great Carpets of the World, Hardback (November 1996)

Ranging through Persia, India, England, France and America, this volume includes the finest types of each carpet, from both museums and private collections. The text contains discussions of production, restoration and conservation, and of the origins of rugs and their techniques of manufacture.
