Sidewall (France), 1850–60
The natural beauty of cascading waterfalls and rock ledges are combined with wooden stairs and bridges to create a trellis framework that encloses harbor views containing tall ships, windmills, and chateaus. The crisp blue of the water highlights the design’s nautical aspect and enlivens the monochrome taupe colorway.
