t Stad Huys van Amsteldam
(probably by Daumont, Paris) ca. 1750-1800 300 x 450 mm Etching/watercolour t Stad Huys van Amsteldam; L'Hotel de Ville d'Amsterdam; la Casa Configliaria d'Amsterdamo; Das Rath-Hau? zu Amsterdam. pasted on slightly thicker paper. The edges are covered with black paper (for the illumination). Good state. This beautiful illuminated optical view shows Amsterdam city hall and the square in front of it. The etching is coloured with pastel-like colours for the buildings and more vibrant colours for the people and events on the square. The outlines, windows and light sources of the buildings are perforated (dots and figures). At the back of the print we see that the holes are covered with see-through paper. Some of the holes are coated with green, yellow and red paint. This gives the illusion of coloured lights when the print is held in front of a light source.
