Vintage Netherlands Art Deco, 1930's Vintage English Art Deco, 1930's (Designed by The Architect Hildo Krop)- This beautiful study in modernist abstraction may conceal a wealth of traditional oriental secrets. Could it be that there are finely rendered Chinese frets or meanders and curling arabesques sprawling asymmetrically across the surface? Dare we see a large irregular ivory medallion here with corner pieces in the lower area? Is this a stunning modern deconstruction on the ancient vocabulary of rug design, or are we looking at Gorky or Miro translated into decorative floor-covering? Hildo Krop was a famous sculpt, potter, designer of furniture, etc, and was forerunner of the style "Amsterdamse School" in the 1920s-1930s. If you rotate the picture 90 degrees right, you will notice two figures on the left hand side of the carpet with blond hair, arms raised (typical for Hildo Krop sculptures and graphics).
