Interior of an Inn
Plate: 120 x 150 mm; paper: 270 x 223 mm; mount: 405 x 555 mm
This interior shows the corridor of an inn lined with pairs of shoes and a broom, dramatically lit by a lamp. Daubigny also depicted this scene in daylight. The observation of a scene at varying times of day is characteristic of Daubigny’s paintings, particularly those of riverbanks. In 1860, though settled in Auvers-sur-Oise, Daubigny travelled extensively in France. This print may represent one of the inns in which he stayed.
