    The romantic years began with the rediscovery of historical and medieval monuments. Many artists took part in it, for example by making lithographs for Baron Taylor's book on the picturesque sites of France, or by making illustrations for novels and newspapers. Many artists went to Paris and exhibited troubadour-style scenes at the Paris Salon or at provincial Salons. This kind of painting is situated between the historical genre scene and the topographical view with a romanticized staging of the story against the background of a picturesque place, indoors or outdoors. Outside, it is an abbey, a famous church or a beautiful ruined castle. When you say "staging", you say "light effect" and some artists are very important in this respect, such as Marius Granet - we say "a Granet light" - or Charles Daguerre and Charles Marie Bouton, painters and inventors of dioramas!
    Our painting is one of these "Granet-like" paintings where characters are gathered around a kneeling man who is pointing to a tombstone in a ruined church. It is probably the discovery of the grave of a famous person. The scene is romantic and the light effects with strong chiaroscuro are characteristic. The painting is signed and dated 1844.
