From the early 18th to the late 19th century, the Tischbein family produced twenty-eight artists and
artisans who were active in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. Carl Ludwig Tischbein first went to Italy in 1819, and by 1825 he was a professor of drawing in the Academy of Rome. This charming view of rooftops and walled gardens is made more immediate by the presence of the cat.
