Any serious book on the history of ebru will have information about the early examples of this art form. Richard Wolf, Phoebe, Easton, Nedim Sonmez are few names among many others. You can also confirm this with Jake Benson who studied this subject seriously. Internet is a very handy tool to find information in any subject but I would double check whether the information presented is correct or not. Once I read in a "marbling" website that marbling was invented in France in 18th century.

Subject: [Marbling] Re: My new web site is up
I will do my best to go back & research my research. I have it
printed out & filed somewhere. I researched this on the internet and
also used a couple of books I have and of course, what I said could
have been wrong. I just did my best with what I could find. If you
could point me to more accurate information, I will change the info
I have on my site. Thanks for your input.

> Congratulations on your new website. In the History of Marbling
section of your website you wrote, "The ebru, or "cloud art" form of
marbling appeared in Turkey and Persia and dates back hundreds of
years to the 12th century. "
> Whether Turkish or Persian in origin I am not aware of the
existence of a marbled paper dating before the second half of the
15th century. I would be very interested if you lead me to the
source of this information.
