View of highest mount Matterhorn in Swiss Alps Was executed around 1940s-1950s by good listed Swiss landscape painter Emil Berger (1890 in Waldenburg, Canton Basel-Landschaft - 1979 in Sissach). 

Emil Berger, son of a watchmaker, grew up in Waldenburg and trained as a primary school teacher at the Wettingen teacher training college. As such, he taught from 1912 to 1955 at the primary school in Sissach. Berger undertook study trips to Munich, Dresden, Italy and Paris, teaching himself to be a painter. He copied Arnold Böcklin and Ferdinand Hodler and dealt with Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot and Paul Cézanne. Several work stays took him to Bernina Hospice, Flims, Zermatt, the Bernese Oberland and St. Antönien. As a result, from 1928 he regularly exhibited in various group exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Basel and at the Basellandschaftliche group exhibitions. In 1974 and 1978 two large solo exhibitions took place in Sissach.
