Signed, dated and inscribed: "J. C. Reinhart fec Romae 1793 | A Civita Castellana". Reinharts virtuosic treatment of the foliage has often been admired by contemporaries. For Friederike Brun, his "cutting of trees [...] the boldest and strongest [...] Beautifully uplifted in abundance and grace are its trees, where you can see every noble family unmistakably and not insignificant masses only flatter the eye. "The cooling of the shadows scrolls you." (Feuchtmayr 1975, p. 76) Vegetation and high rocks almost completely obscure the Italian sky. The viewer believes he is transported to the German low mountain range..
