Description

The precise dating indicates that this drawing very probably depicts a real location, rather than one of the imaginary views that more usually provided Momper with his subjects, but unfortunately we do not have any record of where the artist travelled at this relatively late stage in his career.  His only known trip to Italy, which gave rise to most of his other known topographical drawings, took place in the 1580s.
