Interior of the Pantheon, Rome; Giovanni Paolo Panini
In the National Gallery of Art, DC.
Panini has used false perspective here to show more of the interior and the spectacular dome than would be possible otherwise, though from my recollection of my one visit some years ago, I’d say he’s also made the building feel a bit smaller than it actually is, by compressing the width in this viewpoint.

Enjoyed your croppings of this very fine painting. Eye candy indeed.
Thanks. I hope I make it clear when I show high-resolution crops form a painting like this, that I’ve provided links to a source where the entire image can be seen (and/or downloaded) in the same high resolution or better.
