  • Painting Description

    The "Map of Bas Poitou Aunis and Saintonge with the marshes of the Bay of Aiguillon in 1716" is a historically significant cartographic work created by the French engineer and geographer Claude Masse. This map is a detailed representation of the regions of Bas Poitou, Aunis, and Saintonge, which are located in the western part of France, along with the intricate marshlands of the Bay of Aiguillon. The map was produced in 1716, during a period when cartography was undergoing significant advancements in accuracy and detail, driven by the needs of navigation, military strategy, and territorial administration.

    Claude Masse, the cartographer behind this work, was a prominent figure in the field of engineering and geography in early 18th-century France. He was known for his meticulous approach to map-making, which combined scientific precision with artistic skill. Masse's maps were highly valued for their accuracy and were often used by military and governmental authorities for planning and strategic purposes.

    The map itself is notable for its detailed depiction of the coastal and inland features of the regions it covers. It includes a variety of geographical elements such as rivers, towns, roads, and fortifications, as well as the extensive marshlands that characterize the Bay of Aiguillon. These marshes were of particular interest due to their strategic importance and the challenges they posed for navigation and land reclamation.

    In addition to its practical applications, the map is also a work of art, reflecting the aesthetic standards of the time. The careful engraving and the use of decorative elements such as cartouches and compass roses add to its visual appeal. Today, the map is not only a valuable historical document but also an example of the high level of craftsmanship achieved by early modern cartographers.

    The "Map of Bas Poitou Aunis and Saintonge with the marshes of the Bay of Aiguillon in 1716" by Claude Masse remains an important artifact for historians, geographers, and art historians alike, offering insights into the geographical knowledge and cartographic techniques of the early 18th century.
