The Classical Tradition in Anatolian Carpets
Walter Bell Denny, DC Textile Museum Washington
“The” Textile Museum, 2002 - Design - 128 pages
A fresh and concise look at Anatolian carpets from the 14th to the 20th centuries, including some of the oldest surviving examples of Turkish carpets. Turkish rugs have been a part of European culture since the 14th century. Far more embedded in the Western consciousness than any other carpet type, they are among the most sought-after of all rugs by museums and collectors today. This book draws on the unparalleled collection at Washington's Textile Museum, as well as from other museums and private collections, dealing with issues such as history, lineage, design origins and meaning across the whole spectrum of Turkish carpet weaving.
