The Romantic writers were delighted by the unspoiled vistas of Lake Geneva and its surrounding snow-capped mountains. This watercolor, “Mont Blanc after sunset from the Secheron,” was made by Thomas Henry Graham (1793–1881) during an 1818 tour of Switzerland and France. NYPL, Pforzheimer Collection
