View of Lake Geneva and the City of Geneva from a Hillside in Vaud
Early 19th Century hand-colored lithograph
A group of strollers pauses on a hilltop to admire the view of Mont Blanc, Lac Leman and the City of Geneva. An old paddlewheeler and a traditional sailboat pass by on the lake.
This piece is so exquisitely colored by hand as to be equal to a painting. The artist has used a combination of watercolor and opaque gouache for certain details, like the white of Mont Blanc and the sails on the sail boat.
Antique frame with old glass
