The Gulf of Naples with the Island of Ischia in the Distance, Josephus Augustus Knip, 1818

The Gulf of Naples with the Island of Ischia in the Distance, Josephus Augustus Knip, 1818

oil on canvas, h 90cm × w 109cm. More details

When Knip painted this landscape, he relied on sketches he had drawn in Italy. The result: Italy in a nutshell. The Gulf of Naples, with the island of Ischia and the volcano Epomeo in the distance, is combined with several Roman monuments: the ruins of the Colosseum (left), Nero’s aqueduct and the church of SS Quattro Coronati. The motif of the capital to the right, near the two men, derives from a sketch by Knip.
