Little gem of a painting on panel in its original frame showing an alpine scene at Lake Lucerne in the 19th century. Pencil writing on the back in French. Not all of it is legible, but it seems to be: "Route of the St Gotthard Railroad ????? (possibly the artist's name), ??? Switzerland." Also on the back is n the name of a previous possibly the original owner: Ina Robinson, Chicago, in a different hand. Very skillfully painted with fine coloring. So much beauty in a small package. Overall size is 7 1/2" by 9 1/2". Some minor wear to the frame, small dark line in the sky is under the varnish.
