Axel Haig ~ Chartres: Street Scene and Cathedral

dated 1882, run of 250, C&L-37, with the interesting embellishment that the cathedral is here placed on a hill, adding to its mystique. The "Art Journal" (1882) suggested that a tourist, persuaded to see the actual cathedral, would be disappointed that its actual impression falls short of that depicted in this etching.
