I will, one day, know more details about the paper making industry. For now, however, I will simply say what someone told me about this image. The area depicted in this painting, of the paper making process is the pulp end of the machine - the wet end. (That, I knew) The roll shown in the middle of the painting is called a "Dandy Roll". I don't know why it is called that - perhaps it is just "dandy" to have this wire mesh covered roll impart watermark and texture to the surface of freshly made paper pulp. Or, maybe it was invented by Jim Dandy - who knows? What got my interest was the complexity of the scene and the near monochromatic quality imparted by the flying paper dust. This is the sloppy end of the process - dust and water and pulp all over the place.
