Drawn on vellum, the present sheet is an early work by Jacques Rigaud, and can be dated to his time in Provence, before his move to Paris in 1720. Among a small number of stylistically comparable drawings of this period by the artist is a View of the Town and Harbour of Toulon in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and a View of the Gulf of Marseille in the Albertina in Vienna.
