Known as the "dean of the Cleveland School", Gottwald's students included Charles Burchfield, Henry Keller, and Abel Warshawsky. This painting was probably executed during his yearlong sabbatical that he spent in Italy from 1921-1922 when Gottwald's style was filled with the bright colors and light of the Impressionists.
