Date
1900
Medium
watercolour on paper
Dimensions
67.0 x 49.0 cm
Description
This painting features a mountain range and a river. The upper half of the work contains the mountains. There is a peak in the tlc, and in front of this peak, cut off by the left border, stretches a brownish mountain which reaches diagonally to the right and merges with the rest of the range. This range hosts a glacier. The river portion of the painting is separated from the mountains by a row of tall evergreen trees which appear to follow the river, in front of these trees are small leafy bushes, and then rocks by the shore of the river. In the brc, the river is interrupted by large rocks, which create a small series of falls. The river exits the painting along the whole bottom of the work.
