18 Century Engraving of the Royal Menagerie at Versailles by Antoine Aveline

$550

About

A rare 18 century perspective view engraving of the Salon de la Menagerie at Versailles, attributed to Antoine Aveline retailed in Paris by Nicolas Langlois and executed with the permission of Louis XV, King of France. Inscribed at the bottom of the engraving and translated from French is the following: "The Royal Menagerie visible in the background is encircled by an octagonal courtyard enclosed by iron fencing and gates which separate it from seven compounds filled with rare birds and animals fro distant lands. The first courtyard on the left near the entrance houses the horse stables and sheep pens. On the right there is a magnificent aviary aviary filled with various species of pigeons" A very similar engraving but smaller in size is held in the collection of the Marmottan Museum in Paris.
