View of the Quarries at Cervara

Théodore Caruelle d'Aligny French

Not on view

Aligny made this strikingly spare drawing in 1834, during his second visit to Italy. It presents an expansive view over the quarries at Cervara in the countryside east of Rome. A decade later, back in Paris, he revisited the subject in the painting he submitted to the Salon of 1844 (now lost).
