This detailed picture is an original steel engraving. It was published in 1856 in the "Illustrierte Zeitung". It shows members of all 5 countries who were involved in the Crimean War during the signing of the first peace conditions. This led to The Congress of Paris a few weeks later. It took place in 1856 to make peace after the almost three-year-long Crimean War. The Congress of Paris was a peace conference held between representatives of the great powers in Europe, which at the time were: France, Great Britain, the Ottoman Empire, Sardinia, Russia, Austria, and Prussia. They assembled soon after 1 February 1856, when Russia accepted the first set of peace terms after Austria threatened to enter the war on the side of the Allies. It is also notable that the meeting took place in Paris, just at the conclusion of the 1855 Universal Expo. The reverse side of the engraving is a page of the "Illustrierte Zeitung" of March 1st 1856. It would look even more beautiful when framed in a simple frame.
