    The original painting, fully titled Florence, A View Of The City From The Right Bank Of The River Arno Looking Towards The Ponte Alla Carraia, was painted circa 1700 and was sold by Sothebys, England in 2015 with an estimate of £1-£1.5 million.

    Gaspar van Wittel (1653 - 1736) was a Dutch painter and draughtsman who had a long career in Rome and his work is considered an important precedent to urban veduta-painting. As a surveyor he illustrated a project for the navigation of the river Tiber; this series of drawings would be a valuable record in the direction of his career. In his compositions, a clear interest in aspects of daily life in the city can be observed.
