Landscape with a Fallen Tree

Hubert Robert French

Not on view

Hubert Robert forged a successful career depicting landscapes, architecture and antiquities. He made etchings only during a brief period in his youth in Rome, encouraged by friendships with local collectors, some of whom were amateur printmakers themselves. This image is inspired by a painting by Italian baroque artist Salvator Rosa, then in the collection of Robert’s patron, Jacques-Laure le Tonnelier, the Bailli de Breteuil (1722-1785), ambassador of the Order of Malta to the Holy See.
