Henri Emile GIBERT

Biographically speaking not much is known about Henri-Emile Gibert (Born 1818). He seems to have been an accomplished draftsman, who left us detailed drawings of architectural highlights of his native Paris. We present an orientalist invention, loosely based on the Taj Mahal, which he is unlikely to have every visited.
