Footnotes

  • Benjamin Zobel was one of the leading exponents of sand pictures which remained a popular item until the mid-19th century.

    The practice of using coloured sand for decorative items became popular in the late 18th century. One of the principal centres for the production of sand pictures was Alum Bay on the Isle of Wight, where there was a rich supply of various sands. Typical subjects for such pictures include copies of contemporary pictures and views of the Isle of Wight.
