The principle is simple. We asked 13 illustrators to choose a heritage site in the Terres-de-Meuse region and draw it in the period that spoke most to them. The result is 13 panels featuring a building, an architectural ensemble… in a period of history ranging from the Middle Ages to the middle of the XXe century.
There’s no question here of restoring historical truth – even the most seasoned historians have trouble with visual representation. Nor will we be amused by spotting the occasional anachronism. Rather, what we asked the designers was how they saw a site at a certain time, and to represent it through drawing.
