Monuments of Paris


The Monuments of Paris is hand-blocked and hand-painted scenic wallpaper by Joseph Dufour, ca. 1814.

This scenic panorama was installed in an Atlanta home in the 1920s, and has suffered serious smoke and water damage.  The smoke damage required extensive re-painting on-site, but two panels that could not survive sewer water damage in the wall behind them were removed, copied, and reinstalled.
