Phimeanakas, palace of the Khmer kings in the centre of Angkor Thom (circa 1890) by Louis Delaporte, pencil, watercolour, gouache, and gold paint on paper.

Delaporte devoted himself to the study of the building during his 1873 mission. On his return to Paris he produced three ideal views of the eastern façade
