A rich photograph that is a rare, largely untrimmed print, which has had some professional restoration due to its unmounted state.
See: Jacobson, The Lovely Sea-View, fig.8; p.123; Aubenas, et. al., Gustave Le Gray, 1820-1884, pl.133, cat. no.117; Aubenas, Gustave Le Gray 55, p.71. Only two other prints have come to our attention: one in the Musee d'Orsay and another at the Bearne's Fine Art auction sale. This print is considerably wider than either of those prints, showing additional detail at both sides of this photograph.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.
