Sidewall, Les Moutons, 1952
This well-executed reproduction wallpaper captures the delicacy and balance of the late-eighteenth century arabesque style. Printed in a two-column format, each centered on a central axis, the floating landscape plateaus do not appear awkward, even while suspending floral swags. The design is delicately colored, while the pale blue background was a favorite of the period.
