Gabriele Ricciardelli, who was born in Naples, was one of a number of painters of this period who specialised in views of the city. Like the Lanterna del Molo (No. 2), Ricciardelli highlights thebeauty of the Bay of Naples and animates his scene with details of local life, among them villagers dancing and washerwomen at a trough.
