A view across Lake Lucerne in Switzerland, chromolithograph from a watercolour dated 1851 (Hildebrandt's inscription his maintained in the lower left corner). Edward Hildebrandt (1818-1869) later went on a world tour, from which a folio of his works was published as chromolithographs in 1864 in Berlin under the title 'Reise um die Erde' (Journey around the Earth). His original watercolors were exhibited in London in 1866 and Crystal Palace in 1868, just a year before his death in Berlin.
