This is exactly what the "Background" in the style sheet will do for

Create your rectangle, select it, use "Ipelets -> Symbols -> create
symbol in new stylesheet".   Give it the name "Background".

It will now be shown on each page behind the title.

Another solution is to redefine the macro "\PageTitle" in your Latex
