Choiselat and Ratel

Landscape with Cottage, 1844.
Daguerreotype. / src: The Met

Choiselat and Ratel emphasized the two-dimensional organization of the
picture’s surface. The poplars, reflected in the water, seem to stretch
across the plate from top to bottom instead of sitting on the far side
of the pond; the cottage forms, with its reflection, a single geometric solid
floating in space. (Quoted from source)
