Design for Ceiling

Artist: James Wyatt

Date:1746 - 1813

Wyatt was an English architect and rival of the Robert Adam. He designed in neoclassical and neo-gothic styles.  He lived in Italy for six years where he studied with Antonio Visentini – he even made measured drawings of the dome of St Peter’s Basilica lying on his back on a ladder strung up “without cradle or side-rail, over a frightful void of 300 feet”. Back in England his design for the Pantheon on Oxford St brought him almost instant success. When it was rumoured that he was about to leave the country to become architect to Catherine II of Russia, a group of English noblemen is said to have offered him a retaining fee of £1,200 to remain in their service – equivalent of roughly £220,000 in today’s money. By the 1790s Wyatt was the principal architect of the day, and had more commissions than he could fulfil. He is chiefly remembered for his Romantic country houses. His church and historical building restorations earnt him the nickname “the Destroyer” from later medieval revivalists with a more accurate approach. James died in a carriage accident in 1813 leaving a wife and 4 sons. He was buried in Westminster Abbey where he had worked as Surveyor at the Abbey.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
