Matted print - Decorated French lines and marbleized inlay


Original Etching - Chez Daumont et Lachaussée, Paris,

For enhanced optical color, showing a view of the entrance to the Château de Marly, Yvelines. The optical views, or "mondo nuovo" prints were very popular between the late 18th and early 19th century. They were meant to be viewed through a set of several mirrors or by means of a Zograscope (an optical device) consisting of a mirror and a lens.  The method was developed first in Paris, then London and finally in Germany, representing - so idealized - the most famous sights and landscapes of the East and West. 

Matted print size: 24" x 19"  Actual print size:  approx. 17" x 12" 

(matted - decorated French lines and marbleized inlay)
