In response to the previous post, fellow blogger Janet Blyberg told me that The Down East Dilettante had also written about Zuber panoramic wallpapers. Here is his post on the Zuber ‘Décor Chinois’ pattern.
I am not aware of any other Zuber wallpapers at National Trust houses, but I have found an image of a Dufour wallpaper with Indian views at Attingham Park, Shropshire. The paper dates from about 1815, but was purchased for Attingham by Thomas Noel-Hill, eighth Baron Berwick, who inherited the house and estate in 1897.
Lord Berwick entered the diplomatic service and was posted to Paris in 1903. He became fascinated by French decorative and fine art and bought a number of pieces for Attingham. He probably appreciated the Dufour wallpaper primarily as an example of French design, rather than as a vision of India (see the previous post).
Lord Berwick’s wife Theresa (née Hulton) had grown up in cosmopolitan circles in Italy which included Sickert, Sargent, Browning and Berenson.
Lord and Lady Berwick themselves also entertained artists, writers and musicians at Attingham. The continental artistc influences extended to the Attingham home farm, where calves were named Picasso, Gaugin and Matisse.
