Papiers Peints

This artwork from 1948 was created by illustrator and lithographer Regis Manset to advertise luxury wallpapers. Manset worked a great deal in advertising during the 1950s, including for Air France. Manset had provided cover illustrations for Le Figaro Illustre in the 1930s and was also well known for his illustration of a comic strip called ‘Mr Myope’ in the pages of Point de Vue. The cartoonish, whimsical approach he developed there is reflected in his memorable commercial art and this piece is no exception.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
