Sheet of Wallpaper with Vase and Flowers, anonymous, 1520 - 1560

paper, h 380mm × w 288mm More details

The design of this woodcut is such that impressions of it match up on all four sides. The half vases with roses and carnations at the left and right then make up a complete bouquet. The pattern of twisted link chains continues at the top and bottom. Entire rooms could be lined this way. This print, however, was not used and so has come down to us intact.
