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.

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.

[n.d., c.1695.]
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.
