Hi Valerie, Zobel was the 2nd best sand-artist of his day. Click on "Wikicollecting sandpainting" for a straight comparison with Frederick Schweikhart, whose work was vastly superior to that of his contemporary. regards - Brian Pike

Artist's Description

Benjamin Zobel was one of a team of Table Deckers employed at King George III's court at Windsor Castle preparing side tables at Royal Banquets decorated with ornate pictures using coloured sands, sugars etc.sprinkled upon the surfaces of white linen tablecloths with spaces for cut glass and silverware dishes upon which desserts were served. The sand pictures were discarded together with the debris from the feast. On one occasion the King bellowed at one of the Table Deckers - Haas!

Zobel Haas and Schweikhart independently perfected their own secret recipes and so the craft of 'Marmotinto' or sand-painting' was born. This sand-painting is mounted in its original distressed frame.
