A so-called optical print showing a decorative imaginary town-view of Québec, with a street view with soldiers marching, and pedestrians, an idealized view depicting Québec as a typical European city.
By Franz Xavier Habermann (1721-1796).
This print is a fine example of this illusionary printmaking, but also as a testament to strong interest by Europeans in America at the time and also as a fine example of the perspective view.
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries there were many popular specialty establishments in Paris, Augsburg and London which produced optical viewing devices and special engravings to be viewed through them. In the 18th century the optical prints or vue optique came into existence, whose exaggerated converging lines were intended to produce the optical illusion of deep recession. The viewing devices for which these perspective prints were produced consisted of a lens and a mirror, this requiring the use of reversed or mirror-image pictures.
