Putting On the Glitz-- Wallpapers and wallcoverings with that extra something

About

This exhibition looks at the appetite for opulent, glitzy wallpapers and coverings from the 18th and 19th centuries through to the 1960s and 70s. Featuring new designs, it shows how expensive materials such as gold and silver leaf have been used in the manufacture of wallpapers.
