Carpet The Vine

1896-1897

Highlights Arentshuis_Vloertapijt-De-wingerd_Frank-Brangwyn-c-Dominique-Provost

This is a masterpiece in the field of textile design. Decorative vines meander over a checkered grid and can be traced back to Japanese art. The colours are fresh and varied.

Siegfried Bing ordered this carpet. He was the owner of the avant-garde New Art gallery in Paris, the unsurpassed international meeting point of the then modern art. Bing was the man behind Brangwyn’s international breakthrough as an all-round artist.
