Landscape with Ruins (drawing (visual work); Hubert Robert (French, 1733 - 1808) (French Artist); 1772; J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center (Los Angeles, Los A...; 83.GG.37)
Note: Small figures of peasants and their animals happily prepare their washing, rest, or fish around the large columns of a ruined Roman temple, which serves as the focus and setting of this drawing. A bulky tree opposite the temple balances the composition, reaching up to the sky with its picturesque, crooked branches.
