Palindrome drawing

(Topsy-turvy drawing)

(France?), 18th century.

Sheet: 198 x 165 mm; Image: 183 x 157 mm; Pen, ink and grey wash on paper

Very rare, early upside-down drawing. An “upside down” or “topsy-turvy” is a picture that can be seen differently from a different direction. In this case, the artist of the present draft tried to reveal to the viewer rather the same image when held upside-down.
