More information

Bodeman painted this work while travelling through Italy. It is believed to be the only painting he made in Italy. It differs greatly in terms of composition and subject from the woodland scenes that Bodeman painted in the Netherlands. This landscape suggests that Bodeman knew the work of Corot, who also painted in Italy., Bodeman painted this work during a trip through Italy, and it appears to be the only one of its kind. It is very different in character to the romantic, fantasised landscapes that he made in the Netherlands with trees and mountains, sometimes covered in snow. Here he appears to have recorded his impressions of the landscape close to Rome, as Jean-Baptiste Corot had done before him, and probably countless other painters.
