  • With its cluster of famous Roman ruins, Nîmes in the south of France was a popular stop for classical minded Grand Tourists. William Marlow visited the city during his travels in France and Italy between 1765 and 1768. Like Richard Wilson in the previous decade, or the generation of British Landscape watercolorists who worked in Italy in the 1770s, Marlow was profoundly affected by his Continental sojourns, which provided him with a major source of subject matter after his return to England. For this general view of Nîmes, Marlow takes a vantage point on Mont Cavalier near the Tour Magne, a Roman monument probably dating from the second century B.C. Within the city the well-preserved amphitheater and the temple known as the Maison Carrée, both from the first century A.D., are clearly visible. Another watercolor by Marlow showing a closer view of the amphitheater is also in the collection of the Yale Center for British Art.
