Illuminated optical view of The Tuileries Palace. This was a royal and imperial palace. It was the usual Parisian residence of most French monarchs, from Henry IV to Napoleon III, until it was burned by the Paris Commune in 1871. The roads are crowded with people. The windows and light sources of the buildings are perforated (dots and cut outs). At the back of the print we see that the holes are covered with see-through paper. Some of the holes are covered with red, green and yellow paint. This gives the illusion of lights when the print is held in front of a light source. (Parijs). OPT099
