As mentioned in the 1975/6 catalogue, this is a view in the Sabine hills, possibly of the town Cittaducale, in the area where Voogd drew several views; such as those in his sketchbook in the Rijksprentenkabinet, Amsterdam (inv.no. 1967:102). These views, inscribed 'Roccantica',' Rocca Sinibalda' and 'Belmonte' are all similar in style to the present lot.
Voogd was a pupil of Jurriaan Andriessen, and left for Italy in 1788 where he met artists like Humbert de Superville and Johan Christian Reinhart. He stayed in Italy and published a series of lithographs of landscapes in 1818, a genre for which he had become well-known. This and the following lot should probably be dated around that time
