Casper van Wittel - St. Peter's Square


Casper (Caspar) van Wittel: St. Peter's Square (Rome).

Born in Amersfoort in 1653 he was schooled by Matthias Withoos (1620-1703) in the matter of painting. Matthias was so impressed by his skills he decided to offer Casper the hand of his daughter. But Casper stayed in Rome and married an Italian girl.
