This architectural capriccio is attributed to Giovani GHISOLFI (1623 - 1683) Italian Baroque painter specializing in architectural landscapes with ruins.
In opposition to "vedute" based on the representation of real landscapes,
these fantasy representations were born in the 17th century with Viviano Codazzi in Rome in his architectural fantasies of the Pitti Palace. It was in the 18th century that the genre reached its peak with painters like Marco Ricci or Giovanni Panini.
