Aquarelle portraits of the french nobility in their everyday life by Louis Carrogis Carmontelle (1717 – 1806) who made portraits in pen and watercolor in less than two hours of notable people that he met. He was a French dramatist, painter, architect, set designer and author, and designer of the Parc Monceau in Paris. He also invented the transparent, an early ancestor of the magic lantern and motion picture, for viewing moving bands of landscape paintings.
