Collector Gunnar Nilsson will explore Swedish textiles, starting with better-known types such as “röllakan,” embroideries and Flemish weaves. He will also introduce some of the lesser-known types that never come up in foreign auctions or major Swedish sales. While many in this group are of middling or low quality, there are a few outstanding examples that can easily compete with the best Flemish-weave and röllakan works.
This program is a partnership with the New England Rug Society and The Textile Museum Associates of Southern California.
