EDOUARD BALDUS. Pont en Royans. Artist: Édouard Baldus (French, born Prussia, 1813-1889). Dimensions: Image: 43.2 x 33.9 cm. (17 x 13 3/6 in.). Date: ca. 1859. The cliff-bound town of Pont-en-Royans-where residents lowered buckets and nets into the river from their cantilevered houses-was a well-known destination for those visiting the picturesque sites of France. Baldus pushed the town to the very top of his picture and banished the horizon altogether, focusing on the rough rock surfaces of the ravine with a realism rivaled only by Courbet.
