Vevey 1810 – Mentone 1864
“ The overwhelming power of nature, may it be peaceful or destructive, is the motif of C.’s painting, in which he depicts i. a. mountainscapes, lakes and plateaus … Rodelphe Toepfer saw in C. the master of the Alpine painting. C.’s manner of painting is influenced by the Netherlandish masters, especially Jacob Isaakszoon van Ruisdael and Meindert Hobbema ”
