Vue d'optique - Vue des Invalides prise de l'allée de Breteuil

Vue d'optique - Vue des Invalides prise de l'allée de Breteuil

Chez Basset , Paris circa 1800, 30,5x48,5cm, une feuille.


Original etching. For enhanced optical color watercolor, depicting a view of the Invalides taken from the driveway of Breteuil.
The optical views, also called views, perspectives or "mondo nuovo" prints are very popular between the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. They were meant to be viewed through a set of several mirrors or by means of a Zygrascope instrument consisting of a mirror and a lens. The optical views can be considered the precursors of three-dimensional images and stereoscopes that were very successful in the nineteenth century. The optical views seem to appear in the 1740s and are entertainment lounge. The process was first developed in Paris, then London and finally in Germany and clung to represent - so idealized - the most famous sights and landscapes of East and West.
Beautiful board in fresh colors. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information!
