Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 62
This appears far from being a pleasing, characteristic picture. If taking a number of bushes, rocks, and hills, and mixing them up in a green blue chaos, be Alpine scenery, here it is indeed to the life. We, though not proper judges of the subject, were wont to believe that sublimity, vast beauty, vividness and spirit, marked Alpine scenes; if we were right, this picture is wrong. [P. 130.]
