Vue d'optique - Décoration du feu d'artifice tiré à Londres en réjouissance de la paix en 1763

Chez Mondhare1734-1799, Paris circa 1765, 32x46cm, une feuille.


Original engraving. Optical view highlighted in watercolor, representing a view of the fireworks shot in Green Park, London in celebration of peace in 1763
Optical views, also called views, perspectives or "mondo nuovo", are engravings very fashionable between the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. They were intended to be observed through a set of several mirrors or by means of a Zygrascope, instrument consisting of a mirror and a lens. Optical views can be considered as the precursors of three-dimensional images and stereoscopes, which enjoyed great success in the nineteenth century. Optical views appear to appear in the 1740s and are living room entertainment. The process developed first in Paris, then London and finally in Germany and was aimed at representing - ideally - the most famous panoramas and landscapes of East and West.
Proof with very fresh colors, a trace of crease and dirt without gravity.
