Spanish carpets woven in the early twentieth century, such as this piece, often use designs that hearken back to Spain’s medieval Moorish past. With a light palette consisting of a gold ground and tracery in complimentary contrasting violets, the repeat all-over design of this over-sized piece may be seen in weavings of the fifteenth and sixteenth century from both Spain and Anatolia and is ultimately inspired by classical Holbein carpet design.
