Bramsche: Gebr. Rasch & Co, 1950. Scarce sample of wallpaper signed in the print by Laetitia Cerio, Capri-based artist renowned for her spare, whimsical line drawings. Founded in the late nineteenth century, German wallpaper firm Rasch won an international reputation through its collaborations with modernist designers from the Bauhaus and Vienna Secession. In the 1950s and 1960s, owner Emil Rasch commissioned wallpaper designs from artists across Europe, including Salvador Dalí and Bruno Munari, for the International Artists Collection. Cerio's "Venecia" paper, featuring stylized, delicately tinted views of Venice, dates from this period. A fine example of midcentury popular design. Color pictorial wallpaper sample, measuring 18.5 x 15.5 inches. Stamped on verso: "RASCH WATERFAST / Venecia 1 / R 2023 / $4.50 PER SINGLE ROLL." (Inventory #: 1001336)
