Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 30
In the foreground are the Monastic buildings; and, in the background, towards the north, are some of the lower spurs and ranges of the great Alpine chain, on which the snow is lying. Between the monastery and the lake, the houses and buildings of Locarno are imperfectly seen. On the borders of the lake is a low plain, the deposit of numerous mountain-torrents which here flow into the lake; and, in another part of the picture, at the extreme northerly portion of the lake, a similar alluvial plain is seen. The cluster of white buildings on the opposite side of the lake is the town of Magadino, behind which rises the imposing bulk of Monte Cenero. [P. 6.]
