More about this artwork
This painting is one of a number of idyllic scenes in which Feuerbach depicted music-making children in natural surroundings evoking the South. The landscape, with its rocky valley and waterfall, is based on a study that the artist painted in the environs of Rome in 1865. Feuerbach's title indicates that the scene is near Tivoli, but the location has not been identified. The lofty conception of nature, and the evocation of music, raise this image of two children above the level of genre painting.
