Casper van Wittel - The Colosseum

Casper van Wittel: The Colosseum.

When in Rome he became a member of a gang of painters called the Toordts. They often gathered in the mausoleum of Santa Constanze at the Via Nomentana, where probably still, in a niche, an inscription can be found: ‘Caspar van Wittel, alias De Toordts, 1680’.
