Sidewall, Vibrato

This is a sidewall. It was manufactured by Assemblage. It is dated 2017 and we acquired it in 2017. Its medium is hand-applied plaster and charcoal on paper, waterborne resin. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

This is a gift offer of three wallpapers by Assemblage. These designs have been selected from an extensive line of wallpapers to show a range of this company’s work. All of the Assemblage wallcoverings are hand-crafted with natural materials and made to order.

Vibrato consists of black lines printed diagonally on a white plaster ground, with the lines spanning the full width of the paper. The lines have the appearance of a chalk line snapped against the paper support. The surface is coated with waterborne resin.

This object was donated by Assemblage. It is credited Gift of Assemblage.

Its dimensions are

L x W: 182.9 × 76.2 cm (6 ft. × 30 in.)
