Abstract:

"The design of landscape wallcoverings reflects society's views toward nature and its interpretation within the scope of daily life. Joanne Kosuda-Warner documents the changing attitudes toward the natural landscape in Europe and the United States with wallpapers produced from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. The nineteenth century - when landscape painting, tourism, and the manufacture of luxurious wallpapers thrived - is given particular emphasis. One hundred beautiful color illustrations of papers reveal the cultural connections between the actual landscape, the painted landscape, and interior design." "Wallcoverings from China, France, Europe, and the United States are represented, tracing changes in production from hand-painting and early block-printing to machine printing. Industrial manufacturing created new markets, and designs of the period reflected new attitudes toward the landscape, as more people moved from rural areas to cities. Representations of the landscape from across three centuries demonstrate the perennial desire to bring the great outdoors inside."--BOOK JACKET.
