1751 Bridges Dame Joust Jousting Notre Pont Seine Taking Bargeman Raguenet


EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning 18th-century print captures the historic Pont Notre-Dame bridge in Paris, France, as it was once adorned with the thrilling spectacle of water-jousting on the Seine River. Dated back to 1751, this print by Raguenet showcases the bridge in all its grandeur, with the intricately designed arches and the bustling activity on both sides. Water-jousting, a popular pastime during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, was still alive and well in the 18th century, as evidenced by this image. Barges, adorned with colorful pavilions and armed with long lances, are seen engaged in a fierce competition on the river. The knights on board, dressed in full armor, are poised to deliver a decisive blow to their opponents. The crowd on the bridge and the banks of the Seine, dressed in their finest attire, are fully engaged in the excitement of the event. The print also offers a glimpse into the daily life of Parisians during this era. The bridge is bustling with activity, with people going about their business, children playing, and merchants selling their wares. The Seine River, with its clear waters and picturesque boats, adds to the idyllic scene. This historical print is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of France and the fascinating history of its iconic landmarks. It invites us to imagine the sights, sounds, and sensations of Paris in the 18th century and to appreciate the beauty and grandeur of the Pont Notre-Dame bridge during this period.
