Renaissance Strapwork was one of many layers of
patterns found in the principal upstairs bedchamber of a Greek Revival
farmhouse in Greenwich, New York. The scrolling strapwork is
characteristic of the Renaissance Revival designs, which began to
appear in the 1840s and maintained popularity throughout the 1850s. The
colorway, using a subtle grey on a white ground and blue highlights, is
typical of the foreground/background color aesthetic of the period.
