The ‘Calming Hues’ of Ledger Paper.
Authors: Anthony Wells-Cole and Barbara Walker.
A Stunning, large format illustrated catalogue of the wallpapers at Temple Newsam, one of the few significant collections in this country. Though many rooms were damaged or stripped of their papers, an enormous amount of conservation work has been achieved over several decades. Not least, a new company – the now famous Zoffany & Co.- was created to make meticulous reproductions of some of the wallpapers based on fragments. The wall coverings at Temple Newsam date from about 1700 to the present day, including half a century of rather unsympathetic redecoration from the 1930’s on. Most of the historic Temple Newsam wallpapers have been found since 1979 during structural repair works and during restoration of the house between 1980 and 2009.
