The Northern Italian Landscape is one of Oswald Achenbach's early works, in which the drawing element still prevails. We are together with a family under a pergola overgrown with grapes, sheltering from the sun like a natural arbor. Behind the family in traditional Italian costume, who inspected a fishing net, the view is led into the landscape, which stands out brightly from the foreground. Overgrown rocks tower on the lake, which spreads to the horizon and the surrounding mountains. The bright blue sky with the towering clouds convey the warm air and support the calm atmosphere of the Italian countryside.
