This is a large scale and quite spectacular chromolithograph by Meyer showing the Palais de l'Industrie (Palace of Industry), an exhibition hall built for the Paris World’s Fair of 1855.
The Palais de l'Industrie, designed by Jean-Marie Victor Viel, was intended as a rival to London’s Crystal Palace, the venue of the Great Exhibition of 1851. Despite having structural problems from the beginning, it was used as an exhibition hall until it was finally demolished in 1897 to make way for the Grand Palais, which still stands.
Two small creases at upper left, a scratch in the margin at lower right, trimmed close to the title line, but in good condition overall. Would look great framed.
This is a genuine antique print. It is not a reproduction.
Please note that the digital watermark on the photographs here is NOT on the original print.
Unless otherwise stated above, prints are sold unmounted (not matted) and unframed. Photos showing a print mounted and/or framed are for illustration only unless specifically described otherwise.
