    Visite de Mgr le Duc D’Aumale à la Croix-Rousse, dans l’atelier de M. Carquillat, le 24 Août 1841.

    One of the first paintings woven on a Jacquard loom, using the punch-card system, extremely rare. "Jacquard, born into a Lyonnese family of weavers, was inspired by Vaucanson's punched-card loom to invent the Jacquard attachment, which caused any loom that used it to be called a Jacquard loom. The attachment was an automatic device that for the first time allowed a single operator to control from the loom all the movements involved in the production of complex woven patterns … Jacquard's invention made use of a punched-card system for storing and generating patterns.
