Description

View of the quai du Marché-Neuf as seen from the quai de la Tournelle, showing the former Hôtel-Dieu, the Petit-Pont, and the west front of Notre-Dame Cathedral in the background.

This etching was exhibited at the 1850 Salon. A preparatory sketch[1] shows how Méryon deliberately exaggerated the height of the towers of Notre-Dame in the final work. The handwriting on the sketch reads: Made from nature with a camera lucida (Pris sous nature à la chambre claire).
