Beautifully finished, this large canvas is a quintessential Romantic landscape. The Gelmerhorn, one of Switzerland's most famous mountains, dominates the view in the background, dramatically lit by golden morning light whilst three goats are grazing undisturbed beside some fir trees, reminiscent of the work of Caspar David Friedrich.

The exhibition Le sentiment de la montagne, 1998, in which the present work was included, was one of the first exhibitions to thoroughly delve into the influence of the Alpine Landscape in 19th century art. Perceived as both a frontier and a symbol of national identity for many, the Alps have subsequently been the subject matter of numerous exhibitions, including that of the Lunde collection at the National Gallery, London, in 2011.
