Note

Belongs to a set of prints which were published by Thomas Bradford in 1763, after drawings form the collection of Benedetto Luti. This impression's margin has been trimmed. The drawing is not thought to be by Elsheimer, though the style bears similarities to drawings at Frankfurt which are now attributed to Hendrik Goudt.
