Panorama De Paris Hot Air Balloon Advertising Print

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Panorama De Paris Hot Air Balloon Rides which were being advertised during the 1878 Worlds Fair in Paris, France. The original of this picture was a lithograph print that shows the basket of Henri Giffard's captive balloon and a birds eye view of the city of Paris. This would have been a very exciting adventure for the fair goers as this was something new and dangerous. Very few people of this era had ever been up in the air as airplanes were about a quarter of a century away from being made into a reality. From what I can gather from the French in this poster, the volume of air in the balloon was 25,000 cubic meters, the diameter of the sphere was 36 meters, which was probably the basket in which people could ride and the balloon could reach an altitude of 500 to 600 meters. This would definitely have given people a view of Paris that none had ever seen before.

At Fine Art Prints of Distinction we painstakingly repair the original files of these old paintings and print them using premium quality inks and paper. The end result is a beautiful, archival reproduction print that will last in your home for generations and at a low cost so anyone can now have great artworks hanging in their home or business. Brandywine General Store is proud to offer for sale a print made from the vintage advertisement for Panorama De Paris Hot Air Balloon Rides.
