Description: Brilliant impression of this ruin-filled landscape "in the style of Pieter de Laer," according to Linck, on laid paper with small margins. The quality of the impression and the absence of the number 70 in the upper right corner would appear to mark it as the second state (the number was also removed in the final fourth state). The scene is presumably Italian and the little hostel is built into the ruins of an ancient structure.
