This is a Sidewall. It was manufactured by André Groult. It is dated 1925–28 and we acquired it in 1958. Its medium is machine printed paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

Groult was an important designer of the French art deco style. This wallpaper follows in that vein with its bold styling and uncluttered design. The stylized figures in riding gear, well-groomed animals, and tropical flora, suggest leisure pursuits on country estates. This design conveys the patterned surfaces and curved forms frequently used in Groult interiors and furnishings.

It is credited Gift of Teresa Kilham.
