According to Harrington this plate was etched in 1858 from a drawing (present whereabouts unknown) done in Italy in 1844. There is the possibility that the plate was worked on earlier. “Mr. Haden believes this was drawn on the plate in 1843-4, but is not sure whether it was bitten then or later.”
Additional drypoint work on the left and right wall, and on various other parts of the plate, especially additional shading on the mountains seen between the arches.
