- Curator's comments
- Lory was a painter and printmaker from Bern, capital of one of the most prosperous cantons of the Swiss Confederation. He often collaborated with his father, in whose tradition of picturesque and dramatic Swiss scenery he excelled. This impressive watercolour is related to a print of the Wetterhorn and the Rosenlaui glacier in a series illustrating the Bernese Oberland, which was published by Lory in 1822.
