Catalogue Note

Smith travelled Italy in 1776 or 1777 under the patronage of George Greville, 2nd Earl of Warwick, with whom his name has since been connected. After living in both Rome and Naples, in 1781, he returned home in the company of Francis Towne (see the following lot). The present watercolour is exceptional for its scale and may well have been commissioned.
