Behind Castel Sant’Angelo, Roma, 5 x 7 in., Oil

I did this landscape painting in a very pleasant little park behind The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant’Angelo (English: Castle of the Holy Angel),  which  is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome, Italy. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum. The Castel was once the tallest building in Rome.

The structure on the right of the painting is the rear of the building,and the park was full of baby-strollers and students sunning themselves on the day I was there in April, 2013.
