Diego Giacometti Rug, “La Promenade des Amis”

$50,000

About

The rug has a dense 1/2” wool pile. The majority of the face is off-white with dark green designs. The green comprises a border about two inches in from the edge and diagonal lines across the face with a four-sided star in the center. The corners either have a circle or a round shape with two points on one end, similar to a cat’s head. The green border lines along the length have figural designs that include trees and quadrupedal animals the resemble horses, deer, and dogs. The border lines along the width have several leaves on one side and a mouse and tree or bush on the other. The diagonal lines have a frog on one end and a bat on the other. The underside of the rug is light grey cotton. It does not appear to be intrinsic to the rug but rather added to protect the knots of the pile. The same wool as the pile has been whip stitched around the edges, attaching the cotton backing. It’s also likely that an adhesive has been used between the rug and the backing to prevent separation. At one end is a “DIEGO GIACOMETTI” label woven from the same grey cotton and sewn on. Directly above is the artist’s signature with metal seal attached with wire between the ‘g’ and ‘o’ of Diego. On the opposite end of the rug the grey backing has been folded over several times and glued in place.
