The landscape is based on a contrast and comparison of the dense forest thickets and the patches of light on the ground. Mikhail Lebedev was fascinated by everything that he saw in Italy — the vivid nature, beautiful architecture and bright clothes of the common people. The artist’s interest in all aspects of Italian life is reflected in this Romantic landscape of Ariccia — a small town near Lake Albano on the site of the ancient settlement of Aricia. The church of Santa Maria dell’Assunzione depicted on the canvas was designed by Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini.
