Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 96
View on Lake Kusnacht, is a calm clear scene--the lake, the cottages, castle and mountains, are depicted with a neatness and precision not common to the touch of young painters in oil. We would merely remark, that an indifferently painted boat on the lake, has a sail which seems as stiff as a deal board, and shaded so as to convey the idea that it is lined with black. The neatness of other points in the picture make trifling defects more apparent. A hasty view prevents many excellencies from being noticed. [P. 131.]
