  • Description
    Brown ink and watercolor by the well known French artist, Victor Jean Nicolle. Circa 1787-1789 when Nicolle was in Italy. Signed lower left. No apparent foxing; very slight toning of paper. Condition is excellent. Not presently framed.

    Victor-Jean Nicolle (1754–1826) was a French artist.
    Nicolle was born in the city of Paris. He revealed his talent for landscape compositions at an early age when, in 1771, as a pupil of the Royal School of Drawing he won the Perspective Prize. He acquired a passion for depicting the architecture of classical ruins and in pursuit of this passion he embarked on a journey throughout southern Europe- Italy (Venice, Bologna, Florence, Naples and Rome) as well as France.

    Fascinated by Rome, he made two trips there, 1787–89 and 1806–11, to draw the buildings.

    His watercolors are in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
