Between 1783 and 1790, Carmontelle realized nine of these great panoramic productions which were titled "French countryside decorated with its picturesque gardens called English gardens". These works astound the great modernity with their inventions and display delicate illustrations of the era's care-free attitude on the eve of the French Revolution.
