Hendrik Frans van Lint Paintings in

Hendrik Frans van Lint (1684-1763)  painted many "Italianate" scenes of soft focus, indirect light, fair skies, and lush vegetation.  In less than 20 of his works did he include details of a specific location being represented.  

When in Rome, though, he made faithful representations of some of landmark structures, in something of a "postcard" style.  In these views, any persons in the scene were depicted at a safe enough distance so as to not distract from the objects of interest.
