The article focuses on the work of Italian Baroque artist Salvator Rosa as a reflection of the Grand tourists's experience of the sublime in the Alps. Rosa's work, which anticipated Gothic psychology, was enthusiastically collected in the 18th century. He focused on what he called orrida belleza or wild beauty and his work has a quality of terribilità or fearsomeness.
