Lot Essay

The present work bears similarities in its handling to other decorative works from the late 1920s, and it is likely that it is a rug design. The two small circles are the eyes of a fish, with the shell-like form in the centre of the composition lending a submarine quality to the work.

We are very grateful to Richard Shone for his assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.
