View of Capri from Anacapri
Charles Rémond

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