Up for auction: A very beautiful optical view (vue d’optique, opticaprent, peepshow print) by:
Georg Balthasar Probst in Augsburg.
“Saturnus, Siebende Planet, und dessen Einfluss”
Probst no. 227
Dimensions: Approx. 43 x 31 cm
Hand-coloured sheet from the collection of about 400 titles with postcard images issued by the Augsburg publishing house Georg Balthasar Probst. The slightly is slightly dirty. All in all in good condition.
Optical views by Probst are sought-after today, they show views of bygone days that no longer exist or phantasy landscapes; this is also the case with the view offered here.
Probst’s sheets were far superior to foreign optical views, the copperplates are much more particularised, they have lovingly crafted details and a distinctly finer colouring, which makes each of them a wonderful visual treat nowadays.
