Original Pharmacy Panel By Damien Hirst
Original panel of pharmacy wallpaper showing the Pharmeceutical names. Available in Silver or Bronze.
In 1997, for his restaurant called The Pharmacy located at Notting Hill Gate, London, Hirst designed wallpaper (the “wall chart”) based on the pharmaceutical giant Merck’s handbook endpapers, showing pills and products and describing them with their pharmaceutical titles. Merck objected and he withdrew it as an artwork of wallpaper after he had already plastered the restaurant with silver and gold sheets of the material. Initial plans to open further restaurants outside London were quietly dropped and the restaurant itself closed in September 2003. For the massive Pharmacy sale at Sotheby’s in 2004, though, new wallpaper was designed using biblical titles and references to biblical passages.
