Plan de Paris
Date of Creation:
Karasz's design and the vivid color printing used for this large--37 x 27 inches---map of Paris are especially unusual and striking. All of the principal avenues of the City are clearly depicted and appear heightened with gold color finish that enhances the sense of decorative "old style" luxuriance that pervades the whole composition.
Title cartouche includes two winged cherubs holding a banner title top center while a pair of red curtains are drawn back to reveal a detailed plan of the City of Paris.
