Drölling won the French Prix de Rome in 1810 and went to Rome the next year. He lived in the Villa Medici, which housed the French academy, where many Dutch artists also took drawing lessons. This view of the manor’s grand gardens, with the Villa Borghese in the distance, can still be seen today. Only the aqueduct was destroyed in 1843.
