An exceptional Moroccan pile rug from the central Middle Atlas (mid 20th century) with a highly unusual complex pattern that is similar to examples published in 1934 by Prosper Ricard in Corpus des Tapis Marocains, volume 4. Please note: This rug is published in the article ‘Moroccan Carpets and Modern Art’ in HALI 199, written by Gebhart Blazek. A PDF can be sent upon request.


Jurgen Adam began collecting in the 1960s and started working with the material at an early stage, so he had access to pieces that have long since disappeared from the market. His collection include pile carpets from Rehamna and the region surrounding the city of Boujad, as well as a group of highly unusual pieces and a large number of monochrome carpets from the Middle Atlas.


Please see the catalogue Marokkanische Teppiche und die Kunst der Moderne (published by Arnoldsche in 2013) accompanying the exhibit Moroccan Carpets and Modern Art shown at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich from September 14, 2013 January 5, 2014.
