|Likely New England, ca. late 19th century.|
A true folk art rug original created from the experiences and inspirations of the artist, not from a template or print source. Central to the work is MAMMA, an uncommon variant of "mother", perhaps worked as a gift or as a personal remembrance. The abstract figures and lettering emulate impressionist paintings, including a number of softly colored non-linear shapes surrounding the central field, enclosed within an olive-green border. Some vignettes come into focus, such as a running horse to the left, a central heart, and a preening heart, others are more interpretive.
