Gabriel Perelle : “A General View of Versailles as Seen in the Present Year 1682” (1682)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

This detailed perspective map looks northwest over Versailles from the Court of Honor. The view extends beyond the palace to the gardens, their fountains and the Grand Canal, where the Ancien Régime once held boating parties. It was published in 1682, the year Versailles became the principal royal residence of France, as part of a volume titled Perelle Engravings of Paris, Royal Residences, Chateaux of France with Additional Engravings by Silvestre and Aveline.
