Trompe-l'oeil: imitations, pastiches et autres illusions

19 March - 15 November 2013. The Museum of Art Deco pays homage to the eye-deceiving art form known as "trompe-l'oeil", meaning "trick of the eye" in French. A difficult and often time-consuming technique, trompe-l’oeil involves a painted illusion created using perspective and clever use of chiaroscuro. The 18-month show includes 400 rarely-displayed examples of eye-deceiving wallpapers, marbling, glazed ceramics and even linoleum floorboards.
