Description & Technical information

The hamlet of Handeck near the Gelmersee and its secluded, heavily wooded valleys were some of Calame’s favourite places to paint every summer and occasionally in winter. His pupils and admirers such as Steffan would follow suit and he too made many painting excursions in the area. This plein-air oil study was made looking due west up to the Steinlauihorn.
