99 Teppiche Rugs: Gabbeh, Baluchi and Tibetan Rugsby Carl-Wolfgang Schumann, Volkma Gantzhorn, Siegfried Cremer, Marcus Daniel Cremer, Caroline Pearce-Higgins (Translator)
The Cremer Collection covers a wide geographical span from Armenia to Finland and Morocco in the west and from Iran to Tibet in the east. Most are knotted pile products whose history dates beyond the great traditions of carpet design, going back several thousand years. The collection is a result of the discerning eve of an accomplished artist who has purposely limited his collection to 99 pieces so that the inner coherence of the collection does not "burst its banks". The genuine and great collectors are distinguished by the fact that they are able to seek out just those things which could be their own children from among the immense variety that is offered.
