Panoramic Landscape with a Farmhouse
George Frederic Watts

It has recently been proposed by Prof. Allen Staley that this landscape is the work of the British painter Watts. It would have been painted in the Tuscan countryside, near Florence, where he was the guest of Lord Holland, British Minister there. One friend reported in spring 1845 that Watts had taken a 'violent fancy for landscape painting'.
