Lindsay” and dated just thereafter 1796. The landscape scene this work projects is an absolute gem showing the falls crashing down 290 total meters quickly moving through the center of the composition. Two small figures are finely portrayed in the center of the work just at the base of the falls pointing to it with certain admiration. Below the sheer rock face of the mountain the water flows down to a more wooded area with a small building and bridge to the lower left.
