"Country of Castles" 

This lovely poster is an original published by the French government as a way to increase tourism. It's one of Picart's most well-known works, as he usually focused on tapestry-making. A close-up of a stone vase next to a turtle dove makes this a seemingly simple advert until your eyes focus on the grand chateau and gardens behind. 

Artist: Jean Picart Le Doux

Condition: Fair, some lines and scratches on the poster and messed-up borders

Please note this is linen-backed on canvas
