The art and design revolutions of the early 20th century created carpets of extraordinary vitality. First the flourishing Art Deco movement spread bold patterns across Europe and America, before giving way to sophisticated Modernist abstractions influenced by the Bauhaus, Cubism and collage. In just a few decades carpet design was transformed into a showcase of the avant-garde, as legendary artists and designers such as Picasso, Poiret, Gray, Delaunay, Matisse and Klee created dazzling works of art still collected and admired today.
