Project: Brownson House Living Room - Victorian Wallpaper Art
Shelton Historical Society, Shelton, CT
We need an Illustrator to recreate the art for a wallpaper that was removed long ago and is to be replaced in a Federal style farmhouse, [url removed, login to view], in Fairfield County, Connecticut. We have a faint photo, and schematic sketch with the proportions already laid out for you. We just need someone who is a good illustrator with a painterly hand who is also adept at illustrator to create the digital file. End product will be a custom wallpaper that is digitally printed.
The Brownson House is an old farmhouse once owned by the Brownson Family, a successful, yet frugal, middle-class, farm family who grew produce for the local markets. Thought the home was originally built in 1824 by a wealthy merchant, the museum is outfitted to denote the middle class farm life of the Brownsons in 1913, the moment before electricity, the telephone and technology came to the area. The home is now an interpretive museum that hosts school children and residents.
In short, we need someone who has a knack for drawing roses, flowers, medallions, swags and bows. Basically 3 motifs that will be repeated throughout the design in a half drop repeat. You would be recreating history and we would be greatly appreciative.
