Artist's Description

Gardens of "Château de Vaux le Vicomte "

Le Nôtre employed an optical illusion called anamorphosis abscondita in his garden design in order to establish decelerated perspective. This technique is a projection of forms beyond themselves. The most apparent change in this manor is of the reflecting pools. They are lengthened so as to appear closer to the viewer. From a certain point afar, the distortion created in the landscape elements is corrected and the eye perceives the elements to be closer than they actually are. This point for Vaux Le Vicomte is at the rear of the chateau. Standing atop the grand staircase one begins to experience the garden with a magnificent perspectival view

Very interesting description about these gardens here on Wikipedia
