About This Image

An interesting image of vertical columns, horizontal tile roof line and frescos at the rear. The temporary quality of the image is reinforced by the two wooden posts stuck up on the brick bases to help support the roof. A good print. See: Aubenas, et. al., Gustave Le Gray, 1820-1884, pl.222 for a flopped and uncropped version of this exact image. Only one other copy of this image is noted in the Le Gray Catalogue Raisonné.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
