The structure of the composition, with the village in the distance, recalls the Lazio districts between Orvieto and Orte, recalling the area of Tivoli, one of the favorite places during the Grand Tour.
The painting can compare itself, even in the articulation of the first floors marked by the arboreal spots, with the typical landscape of Roman origin of the eighteenth century, and clearly evokes the works of one of the greatest landscape painters active in Rome between the end of the seventeenth and the early 18th century, Jan Frans Van Bloemen, known as L'Orizzonte who, thanks to his prolific workshop, became one of the most requested painters by demanding collectors.
In particular, we can note that some features of his painting would also be present in our painting, with the horizons shining from the play of light and shadow, the hills kissed by a pastel and almost fairytale brightness, the intense green of the vegetation, the vibrant atmospheric rendering .
There are also stylistic admixtures with other masters active in the same market, such as Claude Lorrain, Jacob de Heusch or Andrea Locatelli.
