Exquisite panoramic view of the medieval city of Fondi with its castle walls. The city is shown nestled into the verdant countryside against a backdrop of mountains. Many travelers are shown on the road entering the city and in the foreground are four figures.


Condition: A

Superb original color. One spot of candle wax in the mountains, but the overall quality of the paper and coloring minimizes this small flaw.

Estimate: $475 - $550

Sold for: $350
