L'oeil sollicité, des paysages et de leurs bâtiments

Abstract : Landscapes and their buildings have been a real iconographic subject in painting and in the art of engraving. Through a collection of 17th century French prints, we are studying the way in which these views were shaped and used. Whether they are the background of a composition or appear as the main motif, they most often propose an opening that enlarges the space of the print. Thus, although they are contained within the limits of the square line, the representation gains in depth, offering a framing that invites the eye to walk along straight or more curved lines. The perspectives it proposes, the figurative escape, the suggestion of another space are the expression of a desire to escape from a frame that may seem constraining.
