|Title||Vintage 19th c. marbled paper, Spanish moiré on Turkish pattern |
|Date||19th century |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Miura: Spanish moiré on Turkish|
This pattern is a variation of a (typical) Turkish where the addition of the Spanish effect alters the overall look of the Turkish element.
The pattern is created by first making an Turkish pattern. Then 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.
The primary colors for this example are green, blue and yellow ochre.
