"(Germ.) Berlin. Changing horses. Tyrol. 37 x 43. A mountain hostelry in the Tyrol, where the diligence has stopped for a relay of horses. The rarefaction of the air, which makes distant objects appear surprisingly near, is admirably well shown in the mountain mass behind the inn, as it is made to look but a stone's throw from the roof. The rocks, snow, trees, mist, etc. are extremely true to nature, both in texture and tone. This is a capital alpine landscape."
