Not on view

This carpet comes from the dining room designed for the Paris apartment of the engineer Auguste Rateau. The project was overseen by Lévy-Dhurmer, a ceramist who turned to painting and decorating. Each room was conceived according to a unified theme, in this case wisteria, a symbol of welcome. Lévy-Dhurmer entrusted the execution of his designs to a number of highly skilled makers. The wool carpet was woven at the centuries-old Manufacture des Gobelins in Paris. For more information on the full room, refer to MMA 66.244.1-.25.
