Naples from Posillipo. Gorgeous gouache in excellent condition of 1880ca. Measure cm 43 x 97.5. View of the city of Naples with a tarantella in the foreground and Mount Vesuvius in the background. The gouache (also known in the French gouache form) is a type of tempera color made heavier and opaque with the addition of a white pigment (for example white lead or gypsum) mixed with gum arabic. The result is a more opaque and brighter color than the normal tempera color. The term can indicate both the painting technique and the paintings executed with this type of color.
