This luminous view framed within an ancient Roman vault is one of a number of scenes painted in and around Rome by Granet between 1802 and 1824. He made many outdoor oil sketches of the Roman landscape during this period but this view is likely to have been painted largely or entirely in the studio using a pen and ink drawing (which is also in the Ashmolean) as his model.
