signed and dated centre right: Phi: Hackert / 1806; and inscribed on the reverse of the original canvas: a Vietr di Salerno. / Filippo Hackert dipinse 1806.

oil on canvas, unlined

unframed: 65 x 95.7 cm.; 25 5/8 x 37 5/8 in.

framed: 80.5 x 111.3 cm.; 31 5/8 x 43 7/8 in.

The canvas is unlined, the paint surface is clean and the varnish is clear and even. There is a pin-prick loss in the centre of the sky. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals very little intervention save for scattered and few pin-prick retouchings. The painting is wonderfully lucid and in very good overall condition.
