This view is little changed today - the elegant form of the Ponte Lucano and the remains of the circular Tomb of the Plautii have withstood traffic between Rome and Tivoli since the 1st century BC. Adriaen van Eemont studied under Philips Wouwerman and travelled with Frederik de Moucheron to Lyon, en route to Italy. Van Eemont was influenced by other Dutch Italianate painters, such as Jan Both and Jan Asselijn, for whose work this painting was previously mistaken.
