Commentary
Label for "Parisian Ecologies: The City Transformed in Nineteenth-Century Prints and Drawings" March 24 - June 25, 2022

A master etcher, Lepère captured the multiple uses of the Seine with contrast and shading. The river was not only a major freight route through the city; it was also used to water and wash horses—the main means of transportation in the nineteenth century—as well as laundry. These different uses contributed to the high rates of disease carried by the river.
