|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|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 sample are blue, dark blue, red, light pink, and light green.
|Collection Notes||This example is scanned from a book cover.|
The text block has date of 1710 but has been highly trimmed and appears to have been rebound probably in mid to late 19th century.
