As Finberg noted, this is evidently not an English subject. It was perhaps copied from a view at Tivoli by John ‘Warwick’ Smith (1749–1831) or another artist who worked in Italy in the 1770s or 1780s. It is interesting not only for its concern with Italian scenery but also as an early essay in the effect of falling water, a technical challenge that was to occupy Turner on many occasions in the ensuing decade.
