|Title||Vintage 18th c. paste paper, daubed |
|Descriptive Notes||Loring: daubed paste paper.|
Historically, variations of daubed papers reached their height of popularity for book decoration in Spain and America between the middle of the 18th and 19th centuries.
This pattern is created when colored paste has been applied to a piece of sponge (or some other implement) and then repeatedly daubed onto a clean piece of paper. In this case, the lines illustrated by this scanned image are daubed with some implement.
The primary colors for this example are pink, yellow and blue.
