This work is one of many by Lady Percy in the Tate collection. Percy’s other studies are views of Venice, Grenoble and Orvieto, all painted in the mid- to late-1830s.
Turner and Girtin had adapted many works by JR Cozens in the early part of the nineteenth century. Percy regularly made copies of these works and she has adopted their style of working in this view of the Boboli Gardens.
