Both of these peep-box images are from Versailles. The format of the two sheets is extraordinary, as these are smaller than ordinary peep-box sheets.
One sheet shows the castle courtyard. The picture is in good condition. Golden colour adorns the fences. On the back is an adhesive strip at the edge due to the previous frame.
The other sheet shows a fountain in the garden of Versailles. Again, golden paint was used for the statues. On the back side, tape is present as a residue of former framing as well as some paint and an owner's entry.
The copper engravings were made by Antoine Aveline. He was a French engraver from the 18th century. His father and brother were also well-known illustrators at the time.
