    Reinhold often made replicas of his landscape sketches for admiring fellow artists, retaining the originals for himself. The primary version of this view, now in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg, is dated September 11, 1822. This, the replica, was painted for Johann Joachim Faber, who painted with Reinhold in the summers of 1823 and 1824. A comparable study by Faber (2009.400.53) is also on view.
