She has joined forces with Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval, which specialises in Art Deco furnishings, and the two will mount a display that mixes Carolle’s distinctive wall decorations, or papiers peints, with a selection of classic Deco pieces designed by such well-known names as Jean-Michel Frank and Eugène Printz.
Pictured above are two of Duval’s items: a Cole Porter armchair by Jean-Michel Frank, c.1928, and a small occasional or gueridon table, c.1925, attributed to Albert-Armand Rateau.
They are set against a backdrop of one of four scenes from Thibaud-Pomerantz’s set of Jardins Anglais wallpaper by Joseph Dufour, c.1803. This design, by the painter Pierre-Antoine Mongin, is considered to be the precursor of the panoramic scene. It is the only known complete set and has never been hung.
Prices for the Thibaut-Pomerantz wallpapers range from around $1500 for some of her smaller Art Deco panels up to $90,000 for the Jardins Anglais.
