Large and Early Märta Måås-Fjetterström Flat-Weave Carpet "Rutmattan", 1931

About

MÄRTA MÅÅS-FJETTERSTRÖM - MID-CENTURY MODERN DESIGN This vintage Swedish flat-weave carpet was designed by Märta Maas-Fjetterström in 1931. It has a geometric pattern with very beautiful subtle colours in red, green, yellow and marine blue. Dimensions: 295 x 210 cm Initialed: MMF (Marta Måås-Fjetterström). Sweden, circa 1940. 100% wool on linen foundation. Very good original vintage condition. Märta Maas-Fjetterström is one of the most influential Mid-Century Swedish textile designers. Her pieces are classic and timeless examples of Modernist Swedish textile ideals. Often inspired by nature, her carpets are both stylized and organic, evoking her earthly source material though the subtle depictions of flowers and landscapes. In 1909, she gained international attention when she was commissioned to design a series of rugs used in the Nobel Prize ceremonies. Today, Maas-Fjetterström’s works can be found in museums around the world, including the Louvre in Paris, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the National Museum of Stockholm.
