Creating Illusion, Fabulous Trompe l'Oeil !

Are you admiring the beautiful 18th c landscape in carved gilt frame?

Hung fashionably by the blue ribbon on the grand papered wall?

Not a wall, nor a painting with its blue ribbon...
But a fabulous trompe l'oeil ...measuring almost 10' tall and 8' wide!

A second magnificent trompe l'oeil ....

4 in all...for sale at Paris auction.
No estimate listed for the price...normally that indicates $$$$$!

Wikipedia describes Trompe l'oeil " art technique that uses realistic images to create the optical illusion ".

And this artist was a Master....
Even more magnificent in person!

Wonder what will be the hammer price...
What would you estimate?
