Artist: Jacques Chereau (the younger), engraver, born at Blois, France, 1688 and died 1776, Paris. Noted for this engravings of King George I of Great Britain and Colbert. Engraving is depicting view of a garden scene. People are shown walking through the Jardin de Plaisance. This print is a vue d'optique. Vues d'optiques were hand-colored prints meant to be viewed through a convex lens. Used as an optical entertainment of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The form emerged in 1740, and engravings were published mainly in London, Paris and Augsburg until the middle of the 19th century. Then better stereoscopic technology replaced it. Vues d'optiques were rendered in dramatic linear perspective, which enhanced the illusion of three-dimensionality when viewed through the lens. Street performers used to set up viewing boxes with a series of prints giving a pictorial tour of famous landmarks, events and foreign countries. Condition: Excellent.
