This painting is attributed to William Sonntag (1822-1900). It is unsigned but has an old typewritten tag on the back with his name and Italian Alps. It is on canvas board. There are small areas of missing paint (see pictures) and some bubbles? The painting is very stable even with these issues. It is old. It has not been examined out of frame.
William Louis Sonntag was born in East Liberty, Pennsylvania (near Pittsburgh), in 1822 and died in New York City in 1900. He is considered an 19th century landscape painter associated with the Hudson River School. In 1840, Sonntag moved to Cincinnati to study with Godfrey Frankelstein at the Cincinnati Academy of Fine Art. Sonntag's work gained popularity because of their positive reception in the Western Art Union shows. In 1853, he first traveled to Europe, and returned in 1855 for a year's study in Florence, Italy. Upon his return, he settled in New York City.
