"Wallpaper" tends to be used as an insult for poor quality, unimaginative paintings. So an exhibition of Wallpaper at the Cuming Museum in Southwark, London, didn't immediately strike me as something worth bothering with. However, these are arts and crafts wallpapers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. And live and learn, Walter Crane (1815-1915) is one of the artists whose wallpapers are on show! I had no idea he created wallpapers. The one shown here is Meadow (1896). I've tweaked the contrast and gamma settings to make the pattern clearer. The exhibition continues until 28 August (title link).
