The relief map of Lille from the Lille Museum of Fine Art.

Some of the more surprising facts relating to the relief map of Lille (1740-1743) date back to the time it was kept in Berlin.It was seized by the Prussians in 1815 and significantly cut back at the beginning of 20th century, reduced from 60m2, its original size to 19m2. The relief map of Lille was badly damaged : hung vertically in Berlin’s military arsenal until 1948, it lost its main buildings and entire clusters of neighborhoods.The grey monuments, in sanded lead, date from 2000 when the relief map was restored.
Map dimensions: 4.65 x 4.05 M = 19m2 (10 tables !).
Scale : 1/600
