Revisiting the Painted House: More Than 100 New Designs for Mural and Trompe L'Oeil Decoration : Nearly twenty years after its first publication, Graham Rust's The Painted House has become an invaluable sourcebook of trompe l'oeil images for interior designers, artists, and students. Now Rust has created more than 100 new patterns for murals, panels, alcoves and doors, overdoors, folding screens, and chimney boards. As with The Painted House, Rust provides designs for copying as much as inspiration, with each drawing reproduced in painstaking detail. Classical and modern images mingle in this collection, which includes landscapes, animals, fish and flowers, baskets, pots, drapery, trellises, and foliage, providing ideas for mural decoration, whether done personally or through the hands of an artist. The New Painted House is a tour de force of sketches, drawings, and completed works, and - with more than 100 color illustrations - is destined to become a classic.
