Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 1
"Linda of Chamouni painted by Ratti at Rome. The light and shade of this picture are beautifully managed. In the centre upon rock sits linda who disappointed in love strayed from her father's home and lost herself among the mountains. In front of her stands her brother who has succeeded by his alpine music in partially restoring her to consciousness. He is evidently per- suading her to return with him to their paternal home. The background furnishes us with a very correct representation of the snowclad mountains of switzerland." (hand 1) "After my death to belong to my son Frank." (hand 2)
