Product description

View of Paris

Author: Probst

The perspective view of Paris that we offer you on this page is a small jewel among the artistic-cartographic achievements of past centuries. The name of the French capital soars high above the spiers of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, in large letters on a parchment that unrolls in the French sky. At the top left and at the bottom the eighteenth-century editor Probst has reported three different legends, thus already thinking of an international audience. 

Techniques from the 18th century have been used to reproduce this work. Finely engraved plates and an antique manual press were used giving this work its fundamental characteristic that ties it to the past: Engraving. The paper used for engraving is 100% cotton and  it undergoes a delicate and important  aging process using only natural substances.

The watercoloring is done by expert  artists in their field who give the work subtle hues and a harmonious composition of colors resulting in a pleasant scenic or stage effect.

Our canvases are printed with a hand press and are produced only to order. It takes about 7 days for black and white production and about 14 days for color production.

*Each canvas is available, with a price increase, even with watercolor coloring, always made by hand by our craftsmen.

Attention: the canvases arrive unframed.
