In the 19th century, painters and manufacturers worked together in an attempt to raise wallpaper production to the level of fine art through painterly scenes and meticulous block-printing. This panel was the central scene of an ensemble inspired by Renaissance poetry and was exhibited at the 1855 Exposition Universelle in Paris, where it won a first-class medal.

Garden of Armida Wallpaper,” 1854, designed by Édouard Muller (called Rosenmuller)
