"More than 250 illustrations complement Brown's text as she makes fresh stylistic connections among designs, artists, regions, and houses representing more than two centuries, in the process discovering and illuminating some missing links in the history of wall stenciling. In addition, she ties together the shared destinies of the families, artists, rescuers, and restorers who lived with, created, or have dedicated their lives to preserving this beautiful art form. She also provides a glossary and a discussion of early paint ingredients, suggests resources for those interested in preserving wall stenciling, and includes a Who's Who of American wall stenciling covering eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century artists and preservationists."--BOOK JACKET.
