Landscape at Olevano Romano

Johann Joachim Faber German

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 806

At the time this sketch was painted, Olevano Romano, a hill town east of Rome, was associated with the German artist Joseph Anton Koch and his followers, Faber among them. The town sustained a thriving community of artists from all over Europe, however, making it a cosmopolitan destination despite its rustic setting. Characteristic of sketches by German artists, a portion of this composition remains distinctly unfinished.
