Catalogue Note

These two watercolor views of Rome were probably intended as Grand Tour souvenirs.  Kaisermann went to Rome in 1789 to work as an assistant to Abraham-Louis-Rodolphe Ducros.  However, his time with Ducros was short-lived due to bad relations between the two artists.  Kaisermann eventually went to work for Pauline Bonaparte Borghese and her husband Camillo and this is when he produced the majoirty of his views of Rome.  He became extremely popular with tourists and his picturesque views were highly sought after by English and German visitors.
