Subject: Twisted paper support

Twisted paper support

I am interested in information about an open weave support.  The
painting depicts a colonial gentleman.  The warp/weft are actually
strands of twisted paper.  The painting surface does not push
through the weave.  Was wet paper applied to create this surface?  I
would appreciate any information on this type of support, especially
where and when it was used.
