A display of five handcrafted rugs, by contemporary rug producer Christopher Farr, based on original designs by the Omega Workshops – the design enterprise associated with the Bloomsbury Group founded by the artist and critic Roger Fry in 1913. None of the designs were signed – the Omega Workshops were run on the basis of anonymity – and only a handful were originally produced but some of the compositions can be attributed, on the basis of style, to Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. Inspired in part by contemporary European art such as the Fauvism and Cubism of Picasso, Braque and Matisse, as well as African art, the geometric designs are characterised by a bold, lyrical style. The rugs were hand-knotted in Turkey and are for sale. Prices £5,000-£15,000.
