more This antique wallpaper screen is truly stunning. It features four of the seven Classical Muses which represent music, science, literature, and nature. The painting technique is quite fascinating and beautiful—it is a woodblock painting on paper overlaid canvas. Each color would have needed a different block meaning this was a very time consuming and skill intensive process. The colors are lovely and the painting of the Muses is really amazing. This was likely made by Zuber or it is heavily inspired by Zuber. It is probably from the late 19th Century or early 20th Century. It was purchased from an antique shop in Italy in the 1970’s and shipped back to the US. I am not an expert. Please decide its attribution yourself. I wish I knew more about it!
This piece is not in the best condition. It could be used and is lovely as is; however, I might recommend some restoration. There are multiple water stains and scratches. There are nicks in the paper and some small places were the paper is damaged. Where a label likely would have been, the paper is torn in the corner on the back and the canvas has been touched up to blend with the paper. See last picture. The worst of it is found in a small spot where there are the words "small storage" etched into the painting in a white space. This must have happened when it was put in storage many years ago. Please utilize the “zoom” feature and do not hesitate to ask any questions.
