W21 - Burde - Notre-Dame, Paris, Gothic Cathedrals, and Us

This work is an etching showing a river and, across it, a large cathedral. The river runs through the main portion of the work, with a paved river bank along the right hand side with several fishermen on it. There are two boats along the right side of the river and a few smaller boats in the background. In the distance is a bridge over the river and on the opposite bank there is a large cathedral with two towers and some trees behind it.

Three gondolas in the foreground are in a river, steering toward a bridge on the right side of the scene. Two figures are steering in the foremost, center gondola, of which only a section can be seen. In the middle ground is a group of buildings, with a cluster of trees on the left. In the background, a cathedral rises up in the center left. The cathedral is created with much lighter lines, and blends in to the background.

This highly detailed drawing in a vertical format depicts the interior of a gothic cathedral looking up at the soaring rib-vaulted ceiling. It appears as though every brick and architectural detail is rendered. The image provides a view into the choir and a transept to the right, which is decorated with a very ornate rose window. <br />
