Georgians “Gobelins”: Carpets from the Republic of Georgia, USSR

September 5 – October 1, 1989

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

The first time that such a grouping of Georgian art works has ever been seen beyond the borders of the Soviet Union.

Select pieces which condense the centuries and abridge the history of Georgia in an interesting and appealing manner will be on display. A beautifully colourful and educational exhibition of carpets that illustrate the early years of this century when Georgia was a thriving trading centre in carpets, wall-hangings and other items of interest.
