Le Sour dans les Alpes

From L'Artiste (Beaux-Arts et Belles Lettres), 1844, 4th serie, tome 11, available in full (although in French!) on Google Books.

And, while we're on the subject of how tech can feed the worlds of art and literature, I'd suggest you check out the Google Art Project -- sort of a "street view" for the paintings in museums. You can gallery hop, exploring both the physical space of the museum and seeing high-quality photos of pieces from the museums. Since I can go to the Met, the Frick, and MOMA any time I want, I played around at Prague's Museum Kampa and Madrid's Museo Reina Sofia.
