Catalogue Note

Bonavia is thought to have originated from Rome, but was in Naples circa 1751 to 1788, the years of his earliest and latest dated paintings. He continued the Neapolitan landscape tradition of Salvator Rosa but to this he added the Rococo palette and soft, atmospheric light which he found in the paintings of Claude-Joseph Vernet, who was in Naples in 1737 and 1746.
