This interior shows the corridor of an inn lined with pairs of shoes and a broom, dramatically lit by a lamp. Daubigny also depicted this scene in daylight. The observation of a scene at varying times of day is characteristic of Daubigny’s paintings, particularly those of riverbanks. In 1860, though settled in Auvers-sur-Oise, Daubigny travelled extensively in France. This print may represent one of the inns in which he stayed.
