From Pucci To Picasso: Nazmiyal Acquires Impressive Collection Of Artist Rugs

NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Nazmiyal Collection has acquired two new Picasso rugs, adding to a growing body of pieces by legendary artists. The Picassos join a remarkable selection of artist rugs, including those by Kandinsky, Pucci, Agam, Panton and Corneille.

" Artist rugs add another dynamic to textiles. They are not just functional decorative items, but true wall hanging, art pieces. They have depth, because of their texture. And they're conversation pieces," says Nazmiyal Collection's Jason Nazmiyal.

One of the most recognizable figures in 20 th century art, Pablo Picasso was famous for his abstract technique. A handful of his works have been reproduced as textiles. Today, Nazmiyal has three of those pieces. Among them, the newly acquired "Tete d' Homme" and "Femme au Chapeau a Pompons et au Corsage," based on the 1962 linocut print of Picasso's wife, Jacqueline.

"This limited edition rug was made after Picasso's death under license from his heirs. No other version of that piece has been found yet, which makes it is truly a rare find," says Nazmiyal.  

Picasso is not the only abstract artist featured in the Nazmiyal Collection. A vintage, Art Deco rug by Bauhaus artist Wassily Kandinsky is also available, as well as pieces by Italian designer Emilio Pucci, Israeli architect Yaacov Agam, pop-art inspired Verner Panton, Dutch COBRA founder, Corneille and others.

A leader in the antique rug market, Nazmiyal has built a reputation for acquiring one-of-a-kind rugs in all styles. The artist rugs collection highlights the company's commitment to offering the highest quality carpets and textile art.

"Who wouldn't love to have a painting from one of these artists? But, who can afford it?" says Nazmiyal. "With these pieces, you can get the same artistic impact at a fraction of the price of what a painting would cost."
