pen, h 365mm × w 508mm More details

Of old, Tivoli – the Roman ‘Tibur’ – was the place where prosperous city dwellers built country residences to escape the noise and stench of Rome. Dupré made this drawing in the fabled gardens of the Villa d’Este, at the time – and still – one of the greatest sights in Tivoli. The dome of St. Peter’s basilica is visible between the tree trunks.
