A Gothic-style church tower is seen in the middle distance. It dominates a cloudless sky in the upper portion of the image, with trees rising behind the lower portion of the building and a single story outcropping of the building expanding to the tower's left. The architectural details, especially the carved stonework and patterned brickwork, are rendered with precision.<br />

This drawing shows a city climbing a hill along the bank of a river. The background is mostly grey, with faint washes of blue around the top and bottom edge to indicate sky and water. The blocky brown, pink, blue, grey, green, and yellow buildings have flat, black roofs and some windows are lit. Little black boats are lined up on the shoreline, and one is offshore flying the French flag. On the right, the tower of a church rises out of the water.

Samuel Chamberlain
The Church at Sézanne - France
Gift of Prof. and Mrs. Alfred H. White
This image builds up from a densely packed lower foreground, comprised of a tree and sloping rooftops littered with chimneys. A church tower, surrounded by birds, rises against a blank sky in the top center of the image, forming an overall pyramidal composition that leads the viewer&rsquo;s eye up. The roofs of the houses in the foreground seem to waver with unevenly laid shingles, indicating that this is an old village. The church tower combines a gothic-style rose window and pointed arches with rounded windows and a much less ornately ornamented belltower, all more characteristic of Romanesque and Renaissance styles than Gothic.<br />
The style of etching combines both precise descriptive detail and more summary, sketchy renderings.&nbsp;Title in pencil, lower left of margin. Signed and dated in pencil right of center below platemark: &quot;John Taylor Arms, 1932&quot;.
