|Title||Vintage 17th c. marbled paper, Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Turkish pattern.|
Historically, this is the oldest of Western marbled patterns and dates back to as early as the middle part of the 15th century.
Since this pattern is probably the earliest and the most simple it also is the base or jump off point for a large number of other patterns.
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 red, dark, medium and light blues, dark green and yellow.
