This is a rare and interesting box picture from the 18th century shows the Pantheon of Agrippa in Rome. Again, the windows are gouged out and backed with white paper. In addition, the windows were coloured with green and yellow silk. With a net-like fabric someone tried create window bars. Mirrored is a headline on the cardboard: Roman Prospect.
At the upper left edge, the sheet is numbered with the number 1.
Joseph Carmine was an Augsburg art publisher in the 18th century. On the lower edge of the copper engraving, the name is difficult to read because the sheet has small scratches.
Zograscope pictures were produced around the mid-18th century and were a popular attraction at fairs. Due to the perspective width of the images, one could take a deceptively real look into the interior of the images, especially of cities. The copper engravings are mounted on solid cardboard.
With special peep-box pictures, the windows of the individual houses were painstakingly cut out and some were backed with coloured paper or silk. With a light at the back of the image, the windows light up with real colour. This results in an optical illusion.
The sheet has been clipped around the edges. The edges, and especially the corners, are bumped. The sheet is a bit rubbed overall.
