An rare French postcard of Benares [Varanasi], featuring fakirs debating and listening with the ghats in the background. Antoine Druet (1857–1921) was a painter and portrait artist, a pupil of Gerome at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and apparently later a Paris gallery owner and photographer of Cezanne paintings.
