Chinoiserie Papers » Hapsburg
The Hapsburg design is a fantastical play of imagination that reminds one both of Delft pottery and French Chinoiserie toile fabric. This design was based on a late 18th Century design that still graces one of the royal palaces of the Hapsburg family in Hungary. The Griffin & Wong design simplifies somewhat from the original work, but the Delft Blue design tones and playful spirit of the Rococo Salon are reflected loyally and with affection. The design can also be treated in a charcoal “sumie” style, and for a more unique styling, certain figures can be worked to a bright color to offset the monochromatic background.
