Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

-- A rare look at one of the world's finest collections of Turkmen rugs.
-- Resplendently illustrated with a focus on detail.

Distinguished by their characteristic red color, Turkmen rugs are called the chamber music of the rug repertoire owing to their rhythmic patterns of motif and detail. Among the major private collections that have been formed during the last three decades, that of Wolfgang and Gisela Wiedersperg is among the world's finest and most comprehensive. The Turkmen tribal groups of the 19th century inhabited a region that included part of Iran, Turkmenistan. Uzbekistan and Afghanistan. This new book from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco illustrates carpets, bags, door surrounds and covers, tent bands, wedding trappings and prayer rugs. Robert Pinner and Murray Eiland, authors of a 50 page essay, are among the world's foremost authorities on Turkmen rugs.
