Bell and Girtin relate this drawing to a watercolour by John Robert Cozens (1752–1797) formerly in the Collection of Charles Gore, with the title View from Prince Doria’s Palace, nine Miles from Genoa.1 They give the source sketch as Beaumont tracing (after Cozens) no.86 (Yale Center for British Art, New Haven), and cite this ‘Monro School’ copy as ‘differing more than is usual from the tracing’.2 The differences seem to be so great as to involve completely different subject matter. It is possible that the view is from the Janiculum rather than from the Pincian Hill, but it does not appear to show a palace near Genoa.
