The history of wallpaper is a long and fascinating subject that dates back to the 16th century. In this lecture Joanna Banham, a freelance curator, explores the history and development of wallpapers, from earliest times up to the present day. She discusses the changing ways in which wallpaper was made, and surveys designs from the first black and white patterns to the Contemporary designs in the 20th century.
