Titled 'Blue Rays,' this masterpiece of the Scandinavian mid-century modern aesthetic was designed by textile artist Marianne Richter (1916-2010) of the Marta Maas Fjettterstrom workshop in Bastad, Sweden in 1949. Richter was educated at the College of Art in Stockholm and began her work with the firm shortly after graduating. She designed flat-woven carpets for the Swedish diplomatic corps, as well as a monumental large scale piece for the United Nations building in New York. Marianne Richter is considered one of the foremost textile artists of the twentieth century. Almost sculptural in its three-dimensionality, this over-sized piece drafts alternating diamond and quatrafoil forms in blues against a lattice of dark and light striped shades. This is a triumph of light, color and design.
