This evocative view of Rome is set in the peaceful, serene environs of Tivoli. Located twenty-three miles east of Rome, Tivoli was for centuries a resort, pleasure garden, and summer escape from the Eternal City.

George Inness painted this scene in the middle of a fiveyear stay in Italy between 1870 and 1875 (his third European trip). It is one of numerous scenes of the Italian countryside that fascinated the artist.
