This painting depicts a Roman bridge in the South of France called the Pont du Gard. William Marlow travelled through France and Italy between 1765 and 1768. He made a large number of drawings which provided the inspiration for many of the paintings he later completed in London. Marlow specialised in painting souvenirs of his Grand Tour travels. The figure on the right hand riverbank in this painting may be a self-portrait of Marlow.
