The French painter Corot displayed a great originality in lyrical landscape painting. He traveled to Italy three times during his life, but he only visited the subject of this work, Naples, on his first trip. From his several small sketches of Naples Castle, Mt. Vesuvius, Ischia and Amalfi, however, it would seem that this trip to Naples was particularly memorable. This tall rectangular canvas was painted during the artist's late years. The silvery and ethereal color, typical of this period, adds a subtle nuance to the whole composition.
