    Per Nordquist trained under Elias Martin in Stockholm, before working in Paris and Naples. This composition would appear to be based on a print by Paul Sandby, which Nordquist could have seen in Martin's studio, since Martin was a contemporary of Sandby and worked in London between 1768 and 1780.
