Moonlight over the Bay of Naples, Gouache circa1820

Very beautiful gouache on paper representing a moonlight in the Bay of Naples, with Vesuvius erupting in the background.

Very good state of conservation.

Wooden frame and gilded stucco decorated with swans and palmettes.

Neapolitan work around 1820-1830.

Our opinion :

The gouache that we present is characteristic of Neapolitan productions of the 19th century.
The particularity of this night view is the striking contrast between the whiteness of the moonlight and the glow of lava, between the calm of a peaceful summer night and the devastating fury of the Neapolitan ogre.
