Lauréus depicted life on the streets of Rome and the city’s famous sights: the Trastevere district, ancient Roman ruins, crypts and landscapes. These places in and around the centre of Rome are still interesting sights. Lauréus’s paintings and drawings create a picture of early nineteenth-century Rome and Romans.
