Alan Rothblatt
The majority of well-respected Turkmen collectors share a highly developed trait, the ability to focus on tiny details of Turkmen weavings that help differentiate age and tribal origin and separate out the greatest examples. Alan refined this ability during his medical career as a minimally invasive surgeon. He acquired his first Turkmen weaving over 30 years ago. He has been an active participant and frequent presenter at the International Collectors of Turkmen Carpets Conferences in Hamburg as well as at the Rug Collectors' Weekend in California. Alan’s other passion is adventure travel to explore remote regions and cultures. During his last sabbatical he lived with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in the Altai mountains and then traveled in search of the great Tekke Bird Asmalyks highlighted in this webinar.
