Description

From the 17th century, this view was a favourite with artists visiting Rome. It is taken from the gardens of the Villa Madama, on the slopes of Monte Mario, looking towards Rome; the River Tiber meanders through the composition and the dome of St Peter's can be seen on the skyline. This is more freely painted than Wilson's other versions of this composition and includes fewer incidental details.
