More about this artwork
From 1854 to 1866 Fries produced an extensive cycle of Italian landscapes, taking his cue from Carl Rottmann’s set in the arcades of the Munich Hofgarten. Fries’s hopes that King Ludwig I of Bavaria would acquire the series came to nothing and he was forced to sell the paintings separately. Schack chose ‘two of the most exquisite’ for his collection: this Sicilian view and a depiction of the Sabine mountains near Rome, also on show here.
