This pair of 19th-century chromolithographs by Daumont presents two views of the grand foyer and loggia of the Paris Opera. One shows a detail of a bay decorated with an "Italia" medallion painted by Paul Baudry for the Paris Opera. Mademoiselle Suzon du Locle as a child holds a cartouche bearing the artist's signature "BAUDRY", accompanied by two geniuses, one lying on his side, resting his chin on a violin and looking at the viewer, the other shaking a tamburello. The second lithograph shows the north tympanum of the octagonal west salon, on the Rotonde de la Lune side. A doorway surrounded by two candelabras and overlooked by a very large painting by Félix-Joseph Barrias, "La Musique champêtre", depicting figures lounging in nature, is immortalized here. These two chromolithographs were published in 1880 by Ducher et Compagnie for the book "Le Nouvel Opéra de Paris".
