American Hooked and Sewn Rugs :
Folk Art Underfoot
In 1974 Joel and Kate Kopp were guest curators for the
ground-breaking and very popular exhibition of hooked rugs held at the
Museum of American Folk Art in New York. In that exhibition and in this
book, first published in 1975, then expanded and reissued in 1985, the
Kopps brought a new eye to the field and showed how the primitive
imagery that appears in these rugs often parallels other categories of
folk art. With over 230 illustrations, nearly half of them in color, the
authors trace the development of the hooked rug, from its origins in
eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century yarn-sewn bed rugs to
twentieth-century examples of hooked rugs.
