The technique of "Intarsia" (marquetry or inlay) is believed to have developed in the Islamic world; introduced into Europe through Sicily, the art was perfected in Siena and in northern Italy in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, spreading to German centers and introduced into London by Flemish craftsmen in the later sixteenth century. After about 1620, marquetry tended to supplant intarsia in urbane work. Info source: www.answers.com

During the Renaissance in Northern Italy entire pictures and series of pictures were made up by marquetry. The producers saw themselves as artists and could earn much more money than some of the painters who are much more famous today. Info source: www.imprs-hist.mpg.de
