Rugged mountainous landscape with a torrent and trees, at lower left two persons stitting on the ground.

Provenance: Verso two numbers formerly written with brown ink "No 229", "no 303" and probably a collector's signatur.

Picturesque landscape drawing, skilfully worked out with strong and broad strokes of the pen and with much shading and cross-hatching.
