View in the Park of the Villa Chigi at Ariccia, Abraham Teerlink, 1822

oil on canvas, h 101 × w 141 More details

Teerlink mainly painted sweeping, panoramic views. In this painting, however, he depicted a small slice of nature in a large format. The monk descending to fetch water leads the viewer’s eye to the flowing stream in the foreground. The painter probably relied on his portfolio of sketches from nature for the many details in this scene, such as the plants by the stream.
