Cliff at Vicovaro
probably by Louis Gauffier

Vicovaro is near Tivoli in the Roman Campagna, some forty kilometres east of Rome. This carefully observed view uses broad strokes of paint to indicate the planes of the cliff face and delicate touches of the brush to delineate the leaves and branches of the trees clinging to the rock.
