Sidewall (USA), 1938–58
This is a Sidewall. It was manufactured by J.C. Eisenhart Wall Paper Co.. It is dated 1938–58 and we acquired it in 1991. Its medium is machine printed on paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.
This mid-century paper contains a single repeating landscape view with a deep perspective showing a river flowing through a peaceful, undisturbed forested area. The deep shades of green, reflected in both the water and the sky, create a monochromatic palette that softens the view. The meandering river and distant mountain beckon one to enter this forest and explore.
