Callidus Guild’s hand pigmented, gesso mural on jute is hosted by BDDW Milano and was installed for and featured in Salone del Mobile. Inspired by the art of Vanessa Bell, Duncant Grant and the Bloomsbury Group, Yolande Batteau painted this work especially for Salone Internationale de Mobile 2016. The original mural is an abstracted landscape portraying the Poppy Field written about in E.M Forester’s Room With A View. Reflecting the Poppy mural, the opposite wall is made of gessoed and shaved jute, mounted with 24 karat gold mirrors. Our 24 karat gold mirrors are set in hand wrought brass frames of various shapes and sizes, set in brass as jewels might be.
