Mountain scenery, whether witnessed in nature or in the production of art, challenges the admiration of mankind. In the picture before us Nature is exhibited in one of her grandest moods. The sky is fretted with wind-tossed clouds that wreathe themselves around the hoary heads of the snow-capped mountains, while far beneath the unaspiring hamlet reposes in timid contrast. The vastness of the Jungfrau is estimated by the aptness of the artist in placing the work of man's hand beside the immense reality of Nature's upheaval, and the greatness of the work is attested in the thoroughness with which it is completed. The trees and foliage to the left of the painting might serve as a lesson in botany, so faithful are they to nature, so perfect in their simulation. [Pp. 19-20.]
