DESCRIPTION:  The Temple of the Sibyl, also called the Temple of Vesta, at Tivoli, was one of the favorite motifs of eighteenth century painters in Rome and was recorded in landscape drawings by a host of French artists, including Boucher and Vernet. But it was depicted most memorably by Jean-Honore Fragonard and Hubert Robert. Robert’s views of the Temple occur with some frequency in his oeuvre in the years around 1760. In our sheet Robert has chosen a viewpoint sharply below the Temple, which is perched at the top of the cliff overlooking the waterfalls of the Villa Gregoriana. A drawing quite similar to ours, annotated Roberti 1759, is in the Hermitage.
