Angler Mural Butterfly-Fish
Dive into an exciting underwater world! With a watercolour wallpaper that stimulates the imagination with bright colours.
The watercolours and paintings of the American painter and draughtsman Winslow Homer (1836-1910) are often dedicated to maritime themes. Roaring waves, fishermen battling the elemental forces, children on the beach: the sea had taken a fancy to him.
In 1883, Homer moved to the Prouts Neck peninsula in Maine. There he lived in a converted studio house - barely a hundred metres from the sea. It was here that he painted the watercolour Fish and Butterflies in 1900. At first it seems like a well-observed study. Painted with quick, courageous brushstrokes, a strikingly patterned fish swims in strong, dark blue water. Directly above it and happily fluttering in front of it, however, comes the irritation: two yellow butterflies! As if it were the most natural thing in the world, they accompany him like cleaner fish.
The Gräflich Münster'sche Manufaktur for the Hohenberger House has created this extraordinary work for lovers of poetic motifs to decorate the walls of their homes.
Allow the underwater world space in your home!
Choose the most beautiful free wall, preferably in a bright room where daylight can fall directly on the mural. The strong contrasts of water, fish and butterflies stand out and support the beautiful colour areas in their reflection.
Play with the colours of the Butterfly Fish wallpaper in your new ambience.
For example, with cushions and planters in blue and black. You can also pick up on the ochre red of the lake floor, with bedspreads or a light flowing curtain.
Even as a teenager, Homer Winslow, together with his brother Charles, sought closeness to nature. They went mountain climbing and slept in tents. They were also passionate fly fishers. Together they went on many fishing trips. In warm weather, they were drawn to the Adirondack Mountains, a mountain range in the northeastern part of New York State. In the winter months, the two brothers travelled to Florida and the Bahamas.
Let the light dance across your wall with the Butterfly Fish mural.
These early impressions were to become decisive for the artist's view. In 1859 he moved to New York City, took drawing lessons and was able to sell his first works to weekly illustrated magazines. A trip to Paris in 1867 brought him into contact with the Impressionists. This was immediately reflected in his artistic shift from documentary illustration to free paintings and watercolours. Homer liberated his brushstrokes and introduced light into his art as a means of design. Like the Impressionists, he loved to paint outdoors in nature.
The Gräflich Münster'sche Manufaktur also feels an obligation to nature. A return to craftsmanship, originality and old values are an urgent concern for them, just as they are for Hohenberger Tapeten Manufaktur. Our high-quality wallpapers meet all the requirements of commercial construction.
