Landscape with two figures and dog resting on right, horseman driving cows and goat on left, and Italianate buildings in background. The British Museum have an impression numbered '15' lower left (absent here). The Italian landscape painter Francesco Zuccarelli (1702-88) spent much of the 1750s and 1760s in England (he was a founder member of the Royal Academy). This engraving from one of his paintings is by Francis Vivares (1709-1780), one of the foremost landscape engravers of his time.
