Description

A female figure appears to be floating behind a man in Scottish traditional dress riding a galloping horse past some tombs as other ghostly silhouettes can be seen in the background.

This lithograph is an illustration to L’œil sans paupières (The eye without an eyelid), a short story by Philarète Chasles.

The caption reads in the original French: Toutes les fois que Muirland se retournait, elle fixait sur lui des yeux flamboyants sur lesquels aucun cil ne dessinait son ombre.
