Mountainous Landscape at Tivoli

Simon Denis Flemish

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 805

This sketch may depict the hills to the north of the road into Tivoli from Vicovaro, suggesting a kinship with the view Denis painted of the latter town (2003.42.22) that is underscored not only by its size but by its sensibility. Denis defines the recession of landscape elements—from the field in the foreground to the line of trees and the escarpment beyond—mostly in green tones, with contrasting pink in the sky.
