Mid 20th Century
China
DESCRIPTION:

This over-sized pictorial carpet using vibrant color blends the Art Deco style of the first half of the twentieth century with a distinctively Chinese sensibility. While the landscape and river scenery at first may seem to paint a more general picture, the American flag flying from the central building may suggest that this is an interpretation of an actual city-scape incorporating the American embassy in Nanjing. Commissioned by the Ambassador to China. The house and trellis were home in Shanghai with the Shankhai River going through it.
