View of a Sepulchre in the Underground Grotto near the Church of S.Nicola on the Island of Lipari, Jean-Pierre-Louis-Laurent Houel
In the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. Gouache on paper, roughly 12×12″ (30x30cm)
This beautiful gouache painting by the 18th century French painter Jean-Pierre Houel conveys a wonderful feeling for both the shadowed recesses of the space and the rough stone texture of the walls.

I am a Chinese painter. I have been drawing for over 30 years,especially landscape paintings and flower-bird drawings. My drawings have been exhibited all over the country and be collected by many countries. Now I want to distribute my drawings to every country. If you have any interest in my paintings and drawings, I will show you the images. Also can mail the paper paintings and drawings to you by airmail.
My drawings will be given away free of charge. Feel free to contact me.
