Catalogue Note

In this serene view of Naples and the islands of Ischia and Capri beyond, Denis captures the last fleeting moments of daylight.  To show the atmospheric effects of the lingering sun, the artist paints this view with beautiful contrasts of light and dark tones.  He baths the middle valley, sea, and distant hills in a golden hue while obscuring the foreground slopes in shadow.
