More about this artwork
For travellers from the North, the Gulf of Naples, with the islands of Capri and Ischia, represented an earthly paradise. Luxuriant natural surroundings formed the setting for a blissful existence in which it was possible to feel transported to a Golden Age. Artists like Rebell gave expression to this sense of a new Arcadia. This painting on copper shows the Marina Grande on the northern coast of Capri, where visitors could watch fishermen mending their nets. For Schack, the picture encapsulated `all the magic of an Italian sunset¿.
