  1. A few years ago there was a display of paintings called "Rooms with a View: The Open Window in the C19th". It was held in the Special Exhibition Galleries in NY's Metropolitan Museum of Art. I don't remember your artist Johann Peter Hasenclever in general, nor have I seen the painting Die Sentimentale c1846-7 before, but I would like to reference it in my post.

    thanks for a great link
