Corot produced this etching for the first volume of the "Eaux-fortes modernes" (Modern Etchings) published by Société des Aquafortistes (Society of Etchers), a group of painter-printmakers devoted to the revival of etching as an art form. This particular impression represents the fourth state of the print made independently from the publication, on different paper and without lettering. The subject was inspired by the artist’s travels in Italy.
