Description

A man is kneeling on a beach by the body of a young woman and holds her wrist while hiding his face in his hand as his colored companion clasps his hands together in grief and looks up at the sky.
The caption reads in the original French: On retrouve le corps de virginie.

When available, the captions in English were taken from the edition of Paul and Virginia published by W. S. Orr And Co., London, 1839.
