Charles Cundall made many painting trips to Italy over the years. He painted in Florence (its justly celebrated Ponte Vecchio and San Frediano), the port of Genoa, an early morning view in Venice, the basilica of San Marco and the Rio San Trovaco – a back-streets canal, Verona, Lake Garda, the island of Monte Isola, several of Perugia, much sketching in Umbria, San Gimignano (with cattle in the foreground), Siena, Rome (including the Piazza del Populo, the Spanish Steps and Keats House and weddings in Michelangelo’s Campidoglio), Assisi (its beautiful Piazza del Comune), Lucca (the church of San Frediano and nearby Massa Macinaia) and Amalfi – with a view of High Mass on Palm Sunday in its baroque cathedral and the Easter procession departing on the cathedral steps.
