Description

View of the archway, inner courtyard, and stairs leading to the second floor of what is now known as the Bargello Museum, but was still, at the time of this drawing, the Florence police headquarters and a prison. A woman on the left can bee seen filling jugs at a wall fountain while on the opposite side, a cuffed prisoner is sitting on a bench, watched by several guards.

The caption reads in the original French: Cour des prisons.
