From Background to Foreground: Looking at an 18th-century Wallpaper


The centerpiece of this exhibition is a late-eighteenth-century French arabesque-patterned wallpaper, printed by Jean-Baptiste Réveillon,  "Manufacture Royale" under Louis XVI. The Réveillon wallpaper, discovered by Sarah and Eleanor Hewitt in 1900, is part of the Museum's permanent collection of wallcoverings—the largest collection of its kind in the United States.
