The Calvary Chapel of the Church Saint-Roch

Oil on canvas, 128 x 97 cm
Musée des Beaux-Arts, Pau

In spite of the theatrical appearance, the painting depicts a real chapel in the church of Saint-Roch in Paris, in the vicinity of the Tuileries. The chapel was designed by Étienne-Louis Boullé. The sculptures were made by Falconet and Anguier.

The painting presently is on loan to the Musée Carnavalet in Paris.
