A waterfall is visible through the arch of a stone bridge near the foreground. Further back, churches rise above the trees. A tree in the left foreground spreads its branches across to the right. This drawing was originally purchased as by Claude Lorrain (1600–1682) but is now thought to be by a Dutch imitator of the master working in Italy. The town in the distance is most likely Tivoli. Claude was widely admired by English collectors: his first works arrived in England at the end of the 17th century and influenced the development of formal landscape gardens.
