⁂ Scarce. In 1753, King Louis XV commissioned Vernet to produce a series of paintings to document and promote the harbours of France. Between 1753 and 1765, Vernet travelled to ten harbours, and eventually completed 15 of an intended 24 views. The series consolidated Vernet's reputation, and from 1758 the present suite of engraved reproductions began. In addition to the fifteen plates etched after Vernet, three more plates were etched after Cochin's designs in 1776 and 1796.
