About

An important French Mid-Century Modern thick pile carpet in wool known as "1930" in a Cubist Design by Sonia Delaunay. Documentation: Monogrammed SD at corner of carpet. There is a cloth tag on rear stamped: Edited par ARTCURIAL, Signed "S Delauney" and numbered #35/100. Sonia Delaunay was the first to adapt the principles of Analytical Cubism and Collage to textile design endorsing her husband theories of simultaneous contrasts. Delauney had discovered the rich color palette of the Fauves and like the Futurists sought to convey a sense of speed and movement in her work. The original piece was designed for the living room of Dr. Charles Viard c. 1925, who was Delauney's doctor and an avid art collector. This rare piece was edited by ArtCurial in Paris, circa 1970 and is signed by Delaunay on the reverse. Literature: A similar model is published in Art Deco and Modernist Carpets, Susan Day, Cronicle Books, San Francisco, 2002, p.115.
