In its golden frame with gold leaf

Paul Collomb favours us with a moving view of Paris. Surely summer in the late afternoon as seem to indicate the vegetation, the pink clouds of a declining sun and the warm tones of the foreground.

The view is taken from Boulevard Henri IV on the Sully bridge. In the foreground, the Marie Bridge. Then, the Louis-Philippe bridge and the Arcole bridge. In the distance, the Pont Neuf.

On the right is the right bank of the Seine where we distinguish the City Hall.

On the left, the beginning of Saint-Louis Island. Then clearly appear the dome of the Invalides and the Eiffel Tower which proudly dominate this poetic panorama.

This view was also interpreted by Paul Collomb on a lithograph shown at the end of the page
