"On the Desert" folder
Cardboard. 18 x 25 cm.
The Museo del Prado owns an extraordinary but little-known collection of photographs. This folder, with a single compartment and an elastic band, is printed with an image dated 1866-1867 by the French publisher Goupil, which reproduces Jean-Léon Gérôme's painting On the Desert (Baltimore, MD, The Walters Art Museum).
