    Inchbold first visited the Alps in 1856 in the company of John Ruskin, who was an early champion of his work. He returned in 1857 and 1858 when he again met up with Ruskin at Fluelen. He settled in Switzerland in 1879 and spent the last years of his life on the north shores of Lake Geneva. This is clearly an on-the-spot sketch originating from a sketchbook.
