Aqueduct in Ruins

Hubert Robert French

Not on view

Almost all of the paintings from the Hôtel Rouillé de l'Étang apparently include a water feature, in this case a basin overflowing into a stream forded by a flock of sheep. To the left is a shepherd with his dog, and to the right, a boy who washes his hat at the fountain. The curving aqueduct occupies the middle distance.
