Five Capitals in the Villa Mattei in Rome1809
Originally, these two drawings were the lower halves of the two sheets on the right with a panoramic view of the Baths of Caracalla. The view continues in the drawing on the far right. To indicate that the sheets belonged together, Knip marked them with a capital Q. Who cut two of the three drawings in half and why he did so remains unclear.
