About this artwork

A Bolognese architect and painter of the Carracci School, Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi played an important role in the development of classical landscape art in 17th-century Europe, with over 50 prints of idyllic imaginary views. Myriad details—from the smoking chimney and fishing party, to the tiny outdoor shrine—only enhance the charm of this example.
