Presented by Peter Hecht in memory of Erika Langmuir
Petersen sketched this view in the Austrian Alps on his way to Italy in September 1850 on a scholarship from the Danish Academy. It probably took him no more than an hour. He focused on the play of light on the mountains and the atmospheric effects of the clouds, leaving the foreground bare, his broad pencil drawing still visible.
