Description:
Architectural and landscape sketch showing a view overlooking buildings in Rome, as seen from the upper stories of an apartment building. In the foreground, the roof of a nearby building is shown, with other taller buildings at left and right. In the middle distance, less discernable buildings extend to the horizon and fade into a hue of purple. Above, the setting sun renders the sky a gradient from blue to yellow to red, as it falls below the horizon at right.
