Orvieto was such a nice, quaint little rest after the rush and sprawling mass of Rome

Assisi, Orvieto.........Umbria: il carattere antico della regione si addice particolarmente bene agli aggettivi che più spesso si adoperano per descriverla: verde, mistica, francescana. Non mancano tuttavia forti contrasti, che ci offrono un panorama a volte idillico e dolce, quello stesso che i pittori umbri quattrocenteschi hanno saputo descrivere con tanta grazia, ma in altre occasioni aspro e persino ostile; paesaggi addirittura commoventi nella loro perfetta armonia, accanto ad altri talmente scabri e solenni da lasciarci intimoriti.

JMW Turner painted this picture during his stay in Rome in 1828. Unlike most of his Italian paintings, this picture describes the actual appearance of a particular place: Turner made several sketches of Orvieto on his way to Rome. However, the final painting blends this description with the compositions Turner admired in the work of the seventeenth-century classical landscape painter, Claude Lorrain.

This is one of a small group of paintings which Turner showed in an exhibition he held at his lodgings in Rome in 1828, (though he re-worked it before showing it in London two years later). More than a thousand people can to see the three canvases he put on show in a room he hired especially for the purpose. These works were a world away from the dark, gloomy, almost gothic scenes he’d been painting back in his London studio. The light of Italy literally transformed him into a different kind of painter. He started using white canvases in order to preserve the luminosity of the final result, rather than adding a veiled or deep brown ground to the surface before adding the later layers of colour.
