Casper van Wittel - Castel Sant'Angelo from the South

Casper van Wittel: Castel Sant'Angelo from the South. Painted in the 1690's, oil on canvas. Location: private collection.

In 1688 he married signorita Anna Laurentini from Rome. From 1689 to 1692 they lived in Rome together with other Dutch painters like Jacob van Staverden aka Giacomo Vastavardon. The latter, also born in Amersfoort, painted fruit and flowers but it didn’t pay out, so he joined the Pope’s guard around 1700.
