Decorative Paint in Supreme Court Chambers

A mock-up of the 188 decorative paint pattern has been placed in the historic Wyoming Supreme Court Chambers. The trompe l’oeil pattern discovered dates back to 1888. This style of painting is a technique that creates an optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions.

The mock-up is based on a historic paint discovery in the room. The mock-up is lined up with the faded outline of the original 1888 design.

Evergreene Architectural Arts painted the design on canvas, which will be installed in the Supreme Court Chambers and then the paint will be touched up on site.
