Paul Klee "Blue-Red" rug

About

Paul Klee (1879 -1940) : 'Blue-red' circa 1940 Klee signature woven on the back of the rug. Paul Klee made a design exclusively for this rug, then woven by Marie Cuttoli for Galerie Lucie-Weill Seligmann in Paris. Exhibition and catalogue launch at the Charles E. Slatkin Galleries, New York, September – October, 1965 Followed by a back-to-back tour of the exhibition to 20 museums across the United States ending in December 1967 Madame Marie Cuttoli, who succeeded in persuading the best painters (including Raoul Dufy, Roualt, Braque, Klee, Matisse, Derain, Léger, Mirò, Picasso etc) to renew the old art of tapestry, understood this close relationship. She was encouraged in her first attempts to renew this art in the ‘30’s when they were first done in her neighbouring Algerian workshops where authentic craftsmen created sumptuous effects. For Mme. Cuttoli, the artistic whole dictates every stage in the realization of a tapestry. While others, as far back as 1925 have taken on the challenge of producing rugs and tapestries, no one else understood the creative sensitivity and the quality achieved by an exceptional weaver and the right selection of wool and dyes. This is what distinguishes her contribution, and it will appear even more clearly as time goes on. Size : 185 x 150 cm Size : 5'1" x 6'1". GALERIE HADJER, PARIS
