Although Nicéphore Niépce took the first fixed, per­ma­nent pho­to­graph in 1822, it was later de­stroyed. The earliest sur­viv­ing pho­to­graph by him is dated c. 1826 and is called 'View from the Window at Le Gras' (La cour du domaine du Gras). The image was created at Sain­t-Loup-de-­Varennes and it captures the roof and sur­round­ing coun­try­side of the estate - Le Gras.
