Tuileries- Paris Garden & palace.
(Celestial- planets & stars].
Issued 1719, Frankfort, Germany for A.M. Mallet .
Charming early 18th century copper engraved geographical print, with pleasing full hand color. The image has a near folk-art feel, a style of image quite unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this very reason.
Above the birds-eye view of this famous Paris location, a celestial sky scene is depicted within a large hanging banner.
Print paper and engraved area remains clean and well preserved.
