Description: Antique print titled 'Amstella intus respiciens ex ponte versus Orphanotrophaeum Amstellodamensis'. Beautiful view of the 'Binnen Amstel' in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 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.
