|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Turkish pattern |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Turkish|
Historically, this is the oldest of Western marbled patterns and dates back to as early as the middle part of the 15th century.
This pattern is created when one or more colors are thrown onto the surface of the bath using a marbling brush. The first colors thrown tend to constrict as other follow and become the 'vein' colors for the latter thrown inks.
The primary colors for this example are black, yellow, light grey and red.
|Collection Notes||This example is scanned from a book slip cover.|
There are two volumes, bound individually, housed between a single regular book cover. This book cover has matching marbled paper to the slip cover.
