Janis, The Photography of Gustave Le Gray, The Art Institute of Chicago/University of Chicago, 1987, p.75, fig.18.
 
According to Janis: 'Some of Le Gray's experiments with combination printing involve a series of closely observed variations of sea and sky from the rocky Mediterranean shore that faced the Gulf of Lions westward toward a small projecting peninsula with Mount Agde in the distance. There are at least seven variations of this view, altered in rather surprising combinations' (p.75). The present lot is one those variations.
