A landscape of exquisite beauty. A cluster of antique cottages is gathered in a valley of the Alps--the sublime "old hills" appear in the background. In front, beside the carefully done houses, we have water and fowl upon it--figures of the peasantry, &c. As a whole, this painting is highly worthy of the artist's fame. [P. 58.]
