Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz was initially brought up in a contemporary avant-garde art world. Of bi-cultural background, she has been based both in New York and Paris. Trained as an art historian at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, she has become over the past 30 years “the”specialist of vintage wallpaper decors (XVIIIc. thru Art Deco period). Thus, committed to the rediscovery of this unique mural art form, she has shown how to reintroduce today these panels into non-traditional and contemporary settings.
