Description: Antique print titled 'Gesicht by de Doelen over de Korte Vyverberg tot Gravenhaghe'. Beautiful view on the Korte Vijverberg, next to the Hofvijver in The Hague. On the right-hand side Peter Post’s ‘Het Mauritshuis’. This is an optical print, also called 'vue optique' or 'vue d'optique', which were made to be viewed through a Zograscope, or other devices of convex lens and mirrors, all of which produced an optical illusion of depth.

Artists and Engravers: Georg Balthasar Probst (1732 - 1801) was a German artist, engraver and publisher in Augsburg.
