View of Tivoli

Samuel Palmer (English, 1805–1881)
In this ravishing sunset view, no doubt painted during Palmer's two-year honeymoon in Italy in 1837-39, a goatherd drives his flock past the ruins of the so-called Temple of Vesta at Tivoli, a city near Rome famous since ancient times for its views, waterfalls, and villas.
