JOSEPH DUFOUR HAND-PAINTED FIVE-PANEL WALLPAPER SCREEN

JOSEPH DUFOUR HAND-PAINTED FIVE-PANEL WALLPAPER SCREEN

6 ft. 2 1/2 in. x 8 ft. 8 1/2 in. Provenance: Lou Marotta Antiques, New York, NY. Literature: Nancy McClelland, Historic Wallpapers, J. Lippincott & Co., 1924, illustrated pg. 323.

Condition:

This panel has been heavily restored, some may consider it to be in "retail" restored condition. There is a lot of inpainting in the sky and clouds with very little original point showing and along the edges with "touch-ups" throughout. There were previous tears flaking that are now stable. In our opinion the scale and subject outweigh the restorations.

Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500
Property from a Private Collector, Washington, DC
