Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples
Landscape dominated by an erupting Mount Vesuvius seen from across a bay from Naples [?] with ships sailing and docked in the port. Numbered upper left "fol. 171." A decorative cartouche, upper right, bears a classical inscription: "Hec ego Chalcidicis ad te, Marcelle, sonabam Litoribus fractas, ubi Vesbius egerit iras. Stat. Silu. Lib.4.c.4." Text is from the Roman poet Publius Papinius Statius, Sylvae book 4, who alludes to an eruption in antiquity. From volume 7 of Antonio Piaggio's notebooks, for the period April-August 1795, within a section commencing "Lava dell' anno 1791". Loosely inserted near the end of the volume, with a letter from Antonio Piaggio, Resina, 20 August 1795, to Sir William Hamilton.
