Look at the rugs – find me
Märta Måås-Fjetterström (1873-1941) was one of the 20th century’s leading and most successful textile artists. Her innovative designs were based on in-depth knowledge of the history of textiles, from the bold patterns of historic peasant styles to the traditional motifs of oriental rugs. The world exhibitions in Paris, London, New York and Chicago helped to build Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s international reputation and a worldwide customer base.
In an extensive exhibition in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace, her rugs from the Royal Collections were on display for the first time. Together with external loans, the exhibition presented around sixty rugs reflecting Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s artistic output up until her death in 1941.
