From Foreign Cathedrals: comprising the Choicest Specimens of Ecclesiastical Architecture of the Middle Ages, chiefly in France, Charles Wild (1781-1835), London, 1862 (1831).

This splendid work is... unequaled in its way.... With all our respect for Prout, and some others, we must admit that there never was an artist who touched on Gothic Architecture with the same severe truth and fidelity as Mr. Wild. London Athenian Society

A most beautiful and magnificent series of plates. London Literary Gazette

Rouen Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Gothic cathedral in Rouen, in northwestern France. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Rouen and Normandy, and dates to the 12th century.

The most famous paintings of the cathedral were produced by the Impressionist painter Claude Monet, who painted a large series of paintings of the building, the same scenes at different times of the day.
