Beautiful handcolored etchings published in Paris. The title "Vue d’optique" designates a specific type of 18th century engraved production: the Optical Views are prints that give the illusion of depth by accentuating the perspective. It is a very particular type, which developed and spread throughout Europe starting from 1730 - 1740, in parallel with the growing interest in "views".
