Together, the concert and marbling demonstration are planned in
conjunction with the current exhibition of Indian Art, "Domains of
Wonder". The exhibit features many examples of Indian painting drawn
from the collection of the late Edwin Binney 3rd, on loan from the San
Diego Museum of Art. This same show will later travel to the Dallas
Museum of Art, and be on display from November 18th 2007 until January
Of particular interest to marblers (aside from the demonstration, and
several works of the demonstrators on exhibit in the Islamic
Corridor), two examples of rare stencil-marbled paintings from the
Binney collection are exhibited. One is "Lady Praying at a Shrine".
This piece was the subject of detailed research including scientific
analysis by the late Christopher Weimann. He successfully reproduced
a facsimile of this work for his article on the subject published in
Fine Print magazine in 1983. This article was fully reproduced in the
book "Christopher Weimann: A Tribute", which can be obatined from
Ingrid Weimann. An online prospectus can be viewed here:
The other marbled painting featured is "A Dervish, Seated in
Contemplation". This has only been previously published as a black
and white reproduction in an appendix devoted to paper marbling,
written by the late Mark Zebrowksi in his book "Deccani Painting".
Both of these marbled paintings will be on display for the duration of
the show, until November 26th. A catalog for this exhibition is also
