Italian CapriccioItalian CapriccioItalian CapriccioItalian CapriccioItalian CapriccioItalian Capriccio

This large and striking Italian capriccio of a temple and portico ruin with a sunlit sky gives strong contrasts as the ancient ruins shadow people below. Figures are in the distance at the steps of a forum, at the well, and with sheep, giving scale and dimension to the work. In the foreground soldiers chat with peasants and a dog wanders the stone fragments. Perspective and proportion are well handled, articulation of the figures and other details are carefully drawn. Oil on canvas, in old gilt frame. This would be a commanding and enchanting view for a living or dining room wall placement. 41" x 59".
