DESCRIPTION:  An exceptionally rich photograph that is a rare, largely untrimmed print, which has had some professional restoration due to its unmounted state.

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.

LITERATURE:  Jacobson, The Lovely Sea-View, fig.8, p.123;
Aubenas, et. al., Gustave Le Gray, 1820-1884, pl.133, cat. no.117.
