Sortavala (112) Kisamäki (9) watercolour (1) Pesu (1) Painting (1) aquarelle (1) Ines Alenius (1)

The subject of the water colour is "Lynkkä-Liisa's" cabin on Kisamäki hill below the current girls' school. The railway to the harbour can be seen down in the background and, further up, the railway to North. Ines Alenius, drawing teacher at the lyceum, is said to have instructed her students to draw the view especially in the upper classes. The work is part of a series of 27 watercolour drafts painted by D.J. Pesu on the old town and older parts of the town based on photographs.
