Giardina writes, page 101: "Rouen is a city in France, northwest of Paris. This interior scene of its famous cathedral depicts the view down the main aisle. This print is based on Eby's visit to Great Britain and France during 1924 and 1925. In printing most impressions, Eby created toene by leaving a layer of unwiped ink on most areas of the plate, selectively wiping clean other areas, including the windows and the altar."

The Church of St. Ouen is a large Gothic Roman Catholic church in Rouen, northern France, famous for both its architecture and its large, unaltered Cavaillé-Coll organ, which Charles-Marie Widor described as "a Michelangelo of an organ". Built on a similar scale to nearby Rouen Cathedral, it is, along with church of Saint Maclou, one of the principal Gothic monuments of Rouen. The well-preserved stained glass is predominantly from the 14th century, featuring jewel tones among panels of clear and frosted white glass
