Description & Technical information

Datable to between 1842 and 1846, when Carl Hummel travelled throughout Italy, this fine watercolour depicts part of the southern coast of the island of Capri. In the foreground is a rocky outcrop with the castle-like Villa Castiglione at its summit, while behind rises Monte Solaro, the highest point on the island at 589 metres above sea level. In the valley between the mountains can be seen the winding paved footpath known as the Via Krupp, leading down to the small fishing village of Marina Piccola.
