Sweden, before 1941
Very rare wall tapestry . Signed MMF. Wool and linen on linen warp (part of the linen is hand-spun). Woven before 1941. Handwoven at Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB, Båstad, Sweden.
This is the only example known by Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s Studio in Båstad.
Märta Måås-Fjetterström (1873-1941), considered to be Sweden’s greatest textile artist, founded her studio in the southern part of Sweden in 1919, where artisan weavers learned to interpret Måås-Fjetterström’s many watercolour sketches into hand-woven masterpieces of knotted piles and ‘rölakan’ flatweave rugs, wall hangings and tapestries of exceptional quality and craftsmanship.
In 1941 textile artist Barbro Nilsson became the studio’s director and, together with artists Marianne Richter and Ann-Mari Forsberg, they continued Måås-Fjetterström’s work. Her tapestries and rugs are represented at Louvre, Victoria and Albert Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Nationalmuseum in Stockholm among many other museums.
