Coloured etching. Image 203 x 234mm. 8 x 9¼". Cut.
From 17 to 28 August 1855, Queen Victoria travelled to France to return the visit that Naploeon III had made to her in London that April. As a complete anglophile, Napoleon, had a lot of respect for the Queen and had thus arranged two very extravagent balls with 1,200 guests.
