Notes: This image recedes naturalistically along the walkway from the cut-off foreground elements to the shrine at the back, and all the forms - except the pine tree and the foliage behind the shrine - are harshly rectilinear. The absence of figures brings attention to the formal properties of the building, which primes the viewer to look at the Orient in terms of romantic beauty.

Provenance: Acquired directly from a descendant of the L.M. Miller family. This was accompanied with the entire family collection of remaining works; including original paintings, pencil sketches and one of a kind proofs.
