It's all happening under the bridge. Hubert Robert (1733-1808) loved to paint ruins to give us a hint of the splendor of ancient Rome. If you look at his many works, it will be no surprise that his nickname is "Robert of the ruins". The Ponte Salario (also known as The Old Bridge) was painted in 1775. It combines a Roman bridge, which once was a great architectural sight in this landscape, with daily life in the 18th century. And the light under this bridge is magnificent. Later today, I will share another work by Hubert Robert, The Bathing Pool, about which I made a video. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #HubertRobert #Robert #FrenchArtist #FrenchArt #FrenchPainter #Ruins #Ruin #Bridge #AncientRome #Roman #Italian #Ancient #OldTimes #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #NationalGalleryofArt #Museum #Gallery #NGA #Washington
