Catalogue Note

Paolo Anesi was one of the most important paesaggisti working in Rome in the mid-eighteenth century and specialized in painting views and ideal landscapes inspired by Rome and the campagna.  This serene view of the Tiber River with the Ponte Rotto in the distance is animated by figures and vessels going about their daily life.  The so-called Ponte Rotto (or “broken bridge”) is what remains of the ancient Pons Aemilius, originally built in the 2ndcentury BC.  Today there is only one arch remaining, but in Anesi's time three arches were still intact.
