Drawing, View of the Picture Gallery at the Château d’Eu (Vue de la Galerie au Château d’Eu), 1844

In this view, the highly decorated Galerie des Guises in the Chateau d’Eu is lighted by three large crystal chandeliers and additional wall candelabra. The coffered ceiling in a square pattern reflects the design of the inlaid floor. Portrait paintings of the Renaissance period are placed in panels along the walls. A lone visitor, hat in hand, gazes up at a painting.
