Huart, P.


Panoramic pre-fire view of London across the Thames as it was in the 1640s.

Title in scroll in the sky, bordered by Royal and City of London arms. Extensive table of explanations (1-40) and two columns of poetic text in French below. After a drawing by P. Huart ca. 1670. 33 x 49 cm.

An apparently unrecorded view by a French artist who does not feature in any of the standard artist dictionaries. It seems to be based on Merian’s view from the 1640s, and is also close to a pre-fire panorama published by Gerard Jollain around 1670.

It is very rare to find panoramas of London before the great Fire, and this is one of the best.
