Jean (Hans) Arp Rug 1938

  • Not on view

This rug was woven by Myrbor, a gallery–workshop based in Algeria and Paris, established by Marie Cuttoli, that produced numerous artists’ rugs during the 1920s and 1930s. Artworks by international modernist figures including Arp, Fernand Léger, and Alexander Calder were sold in the Artek gallery alongside the Aaltos’ furniture, and Ray and Charles Eames completed a 1946 display of their plywood furniture at MoMA with a relief by Arp.
