DESCRIPTION:  Dramatic Modernist vision that presents the Chateau as a powerful series of blocks.

This print is one of the several views Charles Negre took of the Midi. Although not commissioned by the Mission Heliographique, Negre took many views of monuments over the same period.

He was one of the few painters turned photographers who continued to paint, and his aesthetic translated distinctly into his picturesque landscapes and architectural studies.
