The Temple of Vesta in Rome1809
The small, round building is traditionally called the Temple of Vesta, incorrectly, as it turns out, for the god to which the temple was consecrated remains unknown. The fact that every detail is fully worked up suggests that the drawing was meant for sale. Still, it does not seem to be fully finished, for Knip would certainly have introduced some colourful accents in the clothing worn by the local folk loitering about.
