1907. Oil on canvas.
Room 060A

In the summers of 1905 to 1907 Aureliano de Beruete painted the landscape of the Alps. From the Swiss village of Grindelwald he climbed up to the Kleine Scheidegg pass by Mount Eiger where he painted from life. His rapid technique of broad brushstrokes and his ability to capture the local colour that tints the snow reveal an original interpretation of Impressionist pictorial devices.
