Description This painting is attributed to Giovanni Paolo Panini who, influenced by Van Wittel, perfected the painting of carefully composed landscapes with ancient remains bathed in warm light. To the right, a ruinous structure with Corinthian columns acts as repoussoir, leading the eye towards the pyramid of Caius Cestius in the centre and the broken columns to the left. Small figures provide picturesque detail and accents of colour. Panini depicted the pyramid in several paintings, for example Ruines antiques avec la pyramide de Caius Cestius (c.1740, Louvre). .
