|Title||Vintage 19th c. printed marbled paper, Spanish moiré on Italian pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Spanish on Italian|
This pattern is related to and a variation of the (typical) Spanish marble. It was created about the same time at the beginning of the 17th century.
Normally, according to Miura, this pattern is created starting with a Turkish base. A paper which has been folded in half diagonally and vertically (or horizontally and vertically) is laid onto the bath, moving slightly from side to side to create the curvilinear, gradations typical of this pattern. In this case, both the Spanish moiré and Italian aspects of the pattern have been printed using a lithographic process as was popular at the end of the 19th century.
The primary colors for this sample are light brown, dark brown and green.
|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.|
