The Carpet Seller

The Carpet Sellers

The "Carpet Seller" was painted by the Italian artist Francesco Ballesio (1869-1923)
Painting carpets is not an easy thing because of the intricate designs of the patterns. When I painted the carpet for "The Court Dancer" I initially drew out the entire pattern and applied many layers of paint over it until I finally had the effect I needed. Looking at these beautiful rendered carpets  makes me wish Ballessio had shared his secret on how he created these lovely carpets.
