Bidauld’s oil sketch was painted on the spot during the French artist’s stay in Italy from 1785 to 1790. The artist made numerous such studies from which he later painted large historical landscapes in the Neo-Classical style. Painting from nature in oils was one of the ways in which young landscape artists developed their skills. The river Liri lies to the south-east of Rome, but in the late eighteenth century was in the kingdom of Naples.
