Vue d'Optique London Scenes

Vue d'Optique were a genre of etching popular during the second half of the 18th century developed to provide the illusion of depth when viewed through an optical device called a zograscope. We have published a series of London scenes including Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens which drew all manner of people and supported enormous crowds, with its paths being noted for romantic assignations.
