    This watercolour, like many by Girtin and Turner that were executed during the 1790s in Dr Munro's School, relates to a drawing by John Robert Cozens. The only significant difference between the current lot and the Cozens drawing is the addition of a figure on horseback disappearing down the track towards Rome, (see The Art of Alexander and John Robert Cozens, Yale, 1980, no 98 from the Beaumont Album, ill. plate 40).
