DUCROS Abraham - Louis - Rodolphe (Attributed to)
Moudon (Switzerland) 1748 - Lausanne 1810
View of the Colosseum in Rome.
In the foreground on the right a group of five characters, including three villagers, circles around a donkey that has just overturned its load. In the background - left plan the remains of Nero's Domus aurea.
Pen, black ink and watercolour and gouache. Watermark (Small folds in the corners; small traces of accident on the circumference).

Analogy: To be compared with the View from the Coliseum of A. L. Ducros of the Lausanne museum, of larger dimensions (78.7 x 116.7 cm), but drawn from the same point of view.

Three other versions of the Colosseum by L. A Ducros, still with the same point of view, and the same dimensions as those of the watercolour reproduced here (54.5 x 75.5 cm), are kept at the Musée Cantonal des Beaux - Arts in Lausanne (Cf. Catalogue of the exhibition A.L.R. Ducros (1748 - 1810) Paysages d'Italie à l'époque de Goethe; n° 3, p. 70 & Pl. III, p.66 - Paris 1986).
