Design Provenance: Mid-17th Century, a suite of five Soho or Antwerp tapestries, Private Collection of Wolterton Hall
Wolterton Hall is home to a suite of five fine Verdure tapestries, brought to the hall by Horatio Walpole in the mid 18th century. Depicting the mythological love story of Venus and Adonis, the suite portrays the Goddess Venus’s attempts to seduce a handsome but reluctant young man. Wolterton Verdure focuses upon the elegant, verdant landscape in which the narrative is set.
Made from natural grass backed with non-woven paper, this luminous substrate makes truly spectacular walling. Catching the light in its subtly linear organic texture, our Grasscloth illuminates the Tableau Scénique design from within. Fully compliant with fire regulation requirements, this substrate is a great choice for contract walling.
