West Asian treasures F344
A private collection of rugs
The collection is a study collection and was brought together by a Swedish Connoisseur of Art. Making a career first at SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) and then later, he had a long career with the United Nations where he came to work mainly in Sweden, Iran, India, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and New York for close to 30 years. During these years, the academic collector built up his vast collection. Never tiring of attending auctions, lectures, seminars, museums, and workshops relating to the objects he was interested in. Spending weekends visiting antique dealers, fairs, and viewings.
