The present work is typical of Labruzzi’s early depictions of Rome and its classical landmarks. We suggest that intriguing figure to the lower right could be Sir Richard Colt Hoare, Bt., one of Labruzzi’s foremost patrons and one who frequently features in the artist’s watercolours of the Appian Way and the romantic ruins. We are grateful to Dr Richard Stephens for endorsing our attribution on the basis of photographs.
