A vue d'optique of the Royal hospital for injured soldiers in Berlin. Vues d’optique are hand-colored etchings and engravings intended to be viewed through a convex lens. The devices, known variously as zograscopes, optiques, optical machines and peepshows, were an optical entertainment of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Vues d’optiques were rendered in high-key color and dramatic linear perspective, which enhanced the illusion of three-dimensionality when viewed through the lens.

Rare engraving. 510 x 410mm (20 x 16"). Time stained, small margins.
Three-quarter length portrait of Louis-Auguste de Bourbon (1670-1736) as a young man, in armour, gesturing towards a battle behind. The illegitimate son of Louis XIV and his official mistress, Madame de Montespan, Louis-Auguste was legitimised aged three by letters patent. In 1695 he was made Grand Master of the Artillery, at which time he probably commissioned this portrait as a propaganda piece, showing him as an active soldier rather than a courtier. When Louis XIV died in 1717 Louis was made co-regent with Philippe II, duc d'Orléans, but was outmaneuvered by him and lost his role. After a plot in which he attempted to get Philippe replaced as regent by Philp V of Spain, Louis was imprisoned 1715-20. At that time Philip had Louis's printed portraits supressed, making surviving examples rare.
