Behind St. Peter's and not very well known is a garden. It is a quiet and beautiful place even today, a place of contemplation and calm. William Marlow (1740-1813), an English view painter, visited the spot on his Grand Tour of Italy in 1766. He made many sketches on his trip which he later turned into oil paintings. This one was painted in 1783, long after he had returned to England. The viewpoint is taken from the Via Aurelia Antica looking towards the Vatican Walls and the great dome of the Basilica and, in the distance, the dome of San Carlo al Corso. This panting reminds us of the spiritual calm our Church offers in the bustling and busyness not only of Rome, but also in our own lives. (source:

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
