Landscape with Trees and Rocks
Giovanni-Battista Camuccini

This free and quick sketch is probably a view in the Roman Campagna. Camuccini has drawn the scene first, and then applied the paint in long, liquid strokes to define two of the tree trunks (the third trunk at far left was not in the end painted) and the play of light on the hillside. The trees in the background are depicted more carefully than some of the other forms such as the rocks at right, which are painted with a slapdash freedom.
