View of Capri from Anacapri
Charles Rémond
/

Charles Rémond, who studied with the neo-classical landscapist Jean-Victor Bertin (1767 -1842), won the Prix de Rome for historical landscape in 1821 with The Rape of Proserpina by Pluto (Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris). During his four years at the French Academy in Rome, he not only sketched in the environs of Rome, but also travelled around Italy, visiting Naples and Sicily.

The view here is from the town of Anacapri on the slopes of Monte Solaro, the highest mountain on the island of Capri, looking east towards Monte Tiberio and Capri town. Beyond can be seen the mainland of Italy. The artist has captured the vertiginous drop to the sea, on which can be glimpsed a tiny boat with two white sails.
