Detail of Napier Waller's Mural "Revelation of Fashion" - Myer Emporium Mural Hall, Bourke Street, Melbourne

Detail of Napier Waller's Mural

In 1931 Sidney Myer (1878 – 1934) Russian emigre turned Melbourne businessman and philanthropist decided to reinvigorate his store the Myer Emporium by redeveloping his flagship Bourke Street store at 314-336 Bourke Street. Part of this included a new facade in the prevailing interwar style of the time – Art Deco and the addition of several more floors to what was already a very large department store. On the sixth floor a chic European style ballroom with soaring ceilings, sweeping stairs and parquet flooring was planned for use by the emporium’s patrons as a dining room by day and in which Myer could host Parisian fashion shows and hold exclusive Melbourne society events by night. The Myer Mural Hall, so called because of an impressive collection of ten murals by Australian artist Napier Waller, was the realisation of Sidney Myer’s dream.

The Mural Hall, a dining hall suitable for a sitting for one thousand people and a venue for fashion parades and performances, was completed in 1933 as part of the sixth floor which was set aside for dining. It is a large rectangular space with a decorative plaster ceiling and balconies and wall panels in a Streamline Moderne style. However, it is the decoration of ten murals by renowned artist Napier Waller (1893-1972) that are the Mural Hall’s claim to fame. The murals took a little over a year to complete and were painted at Napier Waller’s home at Fairy Hills in Ivanhoe before being transported to the department store where they were hung. Completed in 1934, just after Sidney Myer’s death, eight of the murals are almost floor to ceiling, whilst the remaining two are located over the two side entrances. All pay homage to the seasons and to women and their achievements through history in the areas of art, opera, literature, dance, sport and fashion.

The eastern wall features a mural "Revelation of Fashion". It features: dress from 1520 during the Tudor period; 16th Century Renaissance fashion, the Elizabethan style of the latter half of the 16th Century; court dress from 1625 during the reign of James I; the court dress from 1633 during the reign of Charles I; court dress from 1680 during the reign of Charles II; court dress from 1702 during the reign of Queen Anne; formal dress from the court of Louis XVI in 1780; the garb of the French Revolution (1794 – 1799); the empire line of Napoleon Bonaparte’s court in 1803.

Napier Waller (1893 – 1972) was a noted Australian muralist, mosaicist and painter. He served in France from 1916, being so seriously wounded at Bullecourt that he lost his right arm. He was right-handed but learned to use his left hand while recuperating. Back in Australia, he established his reputation by exhibiting more paintings. He is perhaps best known for the mosaics and stained glass for the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial, Canberra, completed in 1958. However, Melbourne has been described as "a gallery of Napier Waller’s work". Pieces of Napier Waller’s works may be found in the Melbourne Town Hall (1927), the State Library of Victoria (1928), the T & G Life Building (1929), Newspaper House (1933), Florentino’s Restaurant (1934), the Wesley Church (1935) and the University of Melbourne (1940) as well as the Myer Mural Hall.

1906 Fabulous Fashions Of The Renaissance. Gorgeous Antique Chromolithograph

Opulent Fashions For The Elite Between The 11th and 15th Century.
The beautiful details in this gorgeous full color lithograph from the turn of the 20th century in this sumptuous costumer's study are simply amazing.
Printing of this quality and detail is a long lost art-form, I'm afraid. Lithograph print making is an amazingly slow and time consuming process. Far too costly to pay an artisan to do in these times.
"Fabulous Fashions Of The Renaissance" is in wonderful condition, with crisp edges and corners with a lovely soft and even light tanning. Not too shabby at all for 103 year old paper!
This divine full color illustration measures 6 1/2" x 9"
