About This Image

This study was possibly made by Charles Negre or one of his students. The primitive qualities of the image and the background, etc., lead me to believe that this image was actually taken in the field. Looking at the state of the collodion, it is doubtful that any other or many prints would have been produced. Provenance: Honoré d'Albert. Compare with an image in the collection of Marie-Thérèse and André Jammes, L'oeuvre de Charles Nègre, 2002, p.219, lot 574.

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.
