Recent Acquisitions: Oil Sketches and Paintings, 1600–1900. Exh. cat., Daxer & Marschall and Thomas le Claire at the European Fine Art Fair, Maastricht. Munich, 2005, pp. 20–21, ill. (color), notes its focus is atmospheric effect more than detail and that the nature of that effect requires broad, rapid brushwork; states that the topography depicted was identified by Dr. Domenico Riccardi and that a label on the old backing attributes the work to Nerly (Horst Keller, curator, Kunsthalle Bremen, January 29, 1984); adds that Nerly often visited Olevano during his years in Rome.
