Wallpaper Panels from Vues d’Amerique du Nord
Jean Zuber & Cie.
Designed by Jean-Julien Deltil (1791 – 1863)
Alsace, Rixheim, France
Circa 1834 - SOLD



Zuber is one of the great producers of scenic wallpaper, few of which are still operational. These panels belong to a thirty-two-part set that depicts views from an idealized North American society. This series was meant to emphasize the natural beauty of the new nation, as well as the nearly Utopian quality among its people. In one panel offered, “Views of New York Bay,” African-Americans are prominently placed and elegantly dressed. In another, “Military Assembly at West Point,” a crowd peacefully watches drills. These parties are present in other scenes, such as “View of Boston Harbor” and “View of Niagara Falls.” Though intended for the European market, original printings of the scenic wallpaper have been found in American homes from the early 19th century. It can be found in many important collections including the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room, where First Lady Jaqueline Kennedy installed it during the building’s renovation in 1961. The wallpaper represents a promising Old-World image of post-revolutionary, pre-industrial America as a new hope for humanity. (Maximum H: 80.5”; W: 37”)
