Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 89
Born and died at Geneva. For transparency of color, delicacy of pencilling, and exquisite finish, Calame has no equal. His pictures are full of the highest poetic feeling--always crisp, tender, and truthful. He possessed genius of the highest order; and drawing his inspirations for nature herself, he loved to plant his easel upon the mountains, and finish his pictures in the open air. There he could catch the rays of light which tempered the shadows of a passing cloud, and scattered the mists over the valleys, or lit up the greens in the sparkling torrent. [P. 24.]
