Italianate Landscape

Oil on canvas, 58 x 82 cm
Private collection

This composition - an Italianate landscape with a river and rustic buildings, classical figures and travellers in the foreground - is framed by trees on the right side, has figures at every plane (in the immediate fore-, middle- and background) and the smoke rising from the building in the distance leads our eye round and past the sweeping plain to the horizon beyond.
