In this view of Paris from the Quai de Miramion, the focus is very much on the action of life along the Seine. Workmen handle cargo in boats on the river, a lady and gentleman clasp hands in the right foreground, and draft horses pull a load of wood on the far right. The two coaches in the foreground suggest the passage or arrival of wealthy passengers. The vantage point is one of several that Rigaud selected in his series of views of Paris. Rather than focusing on a single monument, the print displays a broad panorama. Notre Dame, the great Gothic cathedral of Paris, is placed in the distance on the far left, and the buildings of the Left Bank (Rive Gauche) are visible in the background.
