|Title||Vintage 19th c. printed marbled paper, Spanish on Italian pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Spanish on Italian |
This pattern is a variation of an (typical) Italian where the addition of the Spanish effect alters the overall look of the Italian element.
Normally, the pattern is created by first making an Italian pattern. As the paper is laid onto the bath to pull up the pattern, it is agitated back and forth in the manner used for any Spanish pattern, causing the characteristic gradated lines to appear. In this case, both Spanish and Italian aspects of the pattern are done by a lithographic process.
The primary colors in this sample are light brown and black.
|Collection Notes||The flat sample from which this photo was scanned is a salvaged endsheet. There is no record of the original item from which these endsheets were taken. Information regarding creation dates has therefore been estimated (using Wolfe), typically by century.|
