Catalogue Note

Though little is known from this artist, he has been identified as an 18th Century Flemish painter of vedute, some of which were engraved by A. Ordio in 1797.1 It is likely that he was active in Rome between 1780-1782, as several dated works with Roman views have been offered in past auctions.2 Detailed landscape scenes such as this composition were very popular.  They served as souvenirs for travelers of the Grand Tour who longed to take a memory of their visit with them.
