More About this Item

Description: Signed and dated lower left: F Knebel Roma 1876 (the last two digits indistinct)The waterfalls at Tivoli were among the most popular stations of the so-called Grand Tour made by aristocratic and upper-middle class travellers in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Swiss painter Franz Knebel opened a studio on the Piazza di Spagna in Rome in 1833 and specialised in Italian topographic scenes. He adopted the motif of the magnificent natural phenomena in Tivoli several times. The figures and animals in the foreground were important compositional elements in all of these works, evoking the vision of a rural, untouched Italian countryside.
