de Gournay Panoramiques Collection

Papier Peints Panoramique is the name given to block-printed panoramic wallpapers which were first created in France in the 19th century. The new technology was used to create dramatic records of the recent achievements; discoveries of far-off lands and peoples; commemorations of famous victories in battles; representations of bucolic French rural life and hunting scenes; representations of towns from antiquity, scenes of mythological importance and maps and images of great cities such as Paris and Rome.

The designs in our collection are partly reproductions of 19th Century originals painted using surviving documentary records and partly de Gournay’s own contemporary creations. Many of these scenes have been enhanced either at the time of installation or in the intervening period to include clouds and vegetation and other elements that have been hand-painted to create the right ambience for the rooms and the owners.
