About This Image

Untrimmed print. The full title is: Chêne en hiver a St. Cezaire S/Siagne, Ch. Nègre 1852 No. 2, which is written in pencil on the verso probably by a Nègre family member. Provenance: Nègre family. The full village name is Saint-Cezaire-sur-Siagne, which lies 15 km southwest of Grasse. A haunting and unusual image for the period of a winter scene. The bare trees and spare landscape are minimalist in feel, and the print is quite beautiful, although the scan doesn't do it justice. See: Heilbrun, Charles Negre: Photographe, 1820-1880, no.86.

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.
