The arrival of the Vanguard Rear Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson at Naples, September 22nd 1798

One of a pair of gouaches (see PAG9745) which still bear the attribution to Guardi, the son of the Venetian view painter, although they might more accurately be described as Neapolitan School. They may have been painted by a member of the local Fabris family and are typical of commemorative pictures which could be commissioned by visitors to Naples.
