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.
