Mid 20th Century Paintings & Decorative Arts Gallery Level 2, NGV International
Rug in brown tones features a grid created by patterned lines with 12 hexagons, 6 of which are incomplete. The hexagons are light brown. At the centre of each hexagon is a sprig of three leaves and stems on an oval ground. Each hexagon has a dark brown border composed of half circles on a light brown ground. The remainder of the rectangle is medium brown. The thick lines that create the grid feature a pattern of curved brown lines on a yellow ground. In each corner of the squares is a small brown square.
The incomplete hexagons appear in rows of three on each side of the rug. These sides have tape adhered to the reverse.
