An Attractive View of Georgian London
London/ Westminster Bridge.
[Venice, c. 1770]

Prospectus Pontis Westmonasteriensis Londini/ Viso Del Ponte De Westmiinster a Londra.

11 ½ x 16 inches. Fine original color, excellent condition.

A beautifully engraved and lively view of London’s Westminster Bridge. In the foreground, the Thames teems with sailboats and river barges. The old Westminster Palace’s river steps can be seen at the right-hand foot of the bridge, and St. Paul’s Cathedral can be seen in the distance to the left. Because the image is presented in reverse, the view is either a vue d’optique or derived from one. When seen through a zograscope, the view would be oriented correctly – with the added illusion of three dimensions.

Price: $950.00
