Wallpaper with a Fava Bean Motif, Gerrit Willem Dijsselhof, 1898

brush, h 1105mm × w 840mm More details

Dijsselhof, like his contemporary Nieuwenhuis, also designed wallpaper. The constantly recurring motifs of flowers and plants in their work betray the influence of the English decorative artist William Morris. Here six sheets have been joined together and worked up in watercolour. Dijsselhof seems to have been trying out the effect of different coloured grounds.
