This is a Sidewall. It was manufactured by Assemblage. It is dated 2017 and we acquired it in 2017. Its medium is hand-applied plaster and charcoal on paper, waterborne resin. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

Vibrato consists of black lines printed diagonally on a white plaster ground, with the lines spanning the full width of the paper. The lines have the appearance of a chalk line snapped against the paper support. The surface is coated with waterborne resin.
