Image Licensing

  • This intricate tangle of energetic, fine lines depicts the railroad yard of Valmondois, a town in northern France. It is the only one of the prints displayed here that does not depict Brittany.
  • The industrial setting, with its pulleys and electrical cables, is unusual for Seguin, who typically favored more pastoral scenes of peasants and rural landscapes.
  • The term “roulette” cited above refers to a tool rolled over the etching plate to create toned areas in the image.
