    Cooper was in Italy from 1770 until at least 1776 and many of his rare surviving works are Italian or Italianate in subject matter.

    This drawing is typical of Cooper's impressionistic drawing style which the artist William Marshall Craig (c.1765-c.1834) described as `shorthand kinds of representation - a twirl, a flourish or a zig-zag' (W.M. Craig, Instructions in Drawing Landscape, 1814-15)
