    Rørbye had almost certainly seen the artist Thomas Fearnley’s depiction of the same place on the island of Procida off Naples before he decided to go there himself. The work has been painted rapidly with thinly applied paint as a base that dried quickly and enabled the artist to begin on the next layer with little delay. Altogether painting works like this need not take more than a few hours, so that to some extent they really reflect what the artists themselves experienced.
