Provenance: Late-18th Century, hand painted Chinoiserie paper. Private Collection of the Château de Walzin


The late 18th century was the golden age of chinoiserie wall-coverings, but these hand-painted Chinese wallpapers sparked a fashion that lasted more than a century, and they are still very much in demand today. The enthusiasm for Chinese styles was reflected in their widespread use in 18th-century decoration. There was a playfulness and informality to the style that made chinoiserie a universally popular choice. Gifted by the Duke of Norfolk in the 1780s, this original Chinoiserie paper adorned the walls of the elegant Stoke House of Newark. A combination of highly detailed imagery and a clever use of proportion gives this Tableau Scénique a beguiling narrative, with flowering bamboos and trees punctuated by exotic birds.
