A Three Panels Wallpaper Depicting a Japanese Scene by Zuber


Paris, late 19th century A very charming five rolls wallpaper/papier peint depicting a scene in a Japanese garden, manufactured by Jean-Henri Zuber. Beautiful relaxing colors in this orientalist scene. Cream color, light yellow, grey and green. Both the landscape and the figures are extremely detailed. The two female figures wear a kimono. The whole scene is made of five rolls put on three panels, so we have two panels with two rolls and one panel with one roll framed. We put each roll on frame and we made mold and moth treatment. Measures: Height 276 cm,Width 235 cm (two panels 94 cm width, one panel 47 cm width) Our wallpaper is hand block painted. This technique is very refined, and consists in hand-pressing ancient inlaid blocks of wood (inlaid between 1797 and 1830). Those blocks of wood were soaked in color and then were hand-pressed on paper. For every different color, they had to use a new woodblock; that means that, to complete a scene, hundreds of woodblocks were needed. These wood prints are considered French Historical Monuments. Zuber has been creating handmade wallpapers since 1797. It still adheres to its 200-plus-year-old tradition of producing wallpapers with original, 17th, 18th and 19th century woodblocks, with some panoramas made up of more than 50 strips of paper and dozens of layers of color and each applied by hand. Zuber’s “printed frescoes” are loved by many people.
