Città di Gerusalemme presa dal Monte Oliveto.
1829. Watercolour and gouache, signed and dated lower left, Marco Tagliapietro disegno nel Settembre 1829, overall dimensions including title and key panel 39 x 52.5 cm (15½ by 20¾ inches), the image 29 x 51 cm, some surface wear and a few small losses to the grey gouache border. A charmingly primitive bird's-eye view of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, populated in the foreground with rabbinical and other Middle Eastern costume figures, two men in European dress, and the very striking presence of what cannot be mistaken for other than the Madonna and infant on a donkey. In the title field above the image is a key to 24 numbered locations of biblical significance, the house of Mary's birth, Herod's gate, the arch of Pilate, St Veronica's house, and the road to Calvary.
