A Grotto in the Gulf of Salernum, moonlight. Joseph Wright of Derby c.1780 Print

£20.00


During his visit to Naples in 1774 Wright became fascinated by the caverns on the coastline. The drawings he made in the Gulf of Salerno inspired several paintings of similar scenes at different times of the day. In this version Wright creates a dramatic atmosphere exploiting the contrast between the dark craggy cave in the foreground and the eerie light effects of the moonlight reflected on the calm still sea beyond.
