An albumen photograph of an entrance and most of one wing of the Louvre from the roof of another wing. Titled in the negative 0n the lower close to center, “LE LOUVRE,” and with the photographer’s red stamped signature, “Achille Quintet” on the backboard just below the photograph on the lower right, Faintly in the lower right corner in the negative is the number 62. The photo is 7 3/8 x 9 5/8 inches (19 cm x 24. 5 cm) mounted on white thin cardboard 11 ¼ x 15 inches (28.5 x 38 cm).
Condition: Excellent. The image is clean and crisp. The mount has some discoloration around the edges and some foxing in the right margin.
Most to work of Achille Quinet that I have seen has the very good quality printing and tone that is present in this photograph.
