Although he worked primarily in Dresden, a center for Romantic landscape painting during the early 19th century, Ludwig Richter—like many artists of the period—traveled to Rome as a young art student (1822–26). The Fountain at Grottaferrata, completed some years after Richter’s return to Germany, is based on his detailed drawings of the Italian countryside just outside of Rome and carefully captures the features that made this site famous, such as the fortified monastery in the background. With its classically composed yet acutely naturalistic landscape, folkish figures, and dramatic light, this work epitomizes a generation of artists who viewed the Italian landscape with Germanic sensibilities.
