On receiving the brief I was interested to imagine what it was that brought Lord Charlemont to Marino in the first place. Coming out of a crowded noisy smelly city it must have been such a relief to find fresh air but of greater value was surely the prospect of an uninterrupted view. Given that the memory of his beloved Italy must have remained with him I also wonder if the line of the distant mountains across the bay reminded him of his travels and gave him the notion of being able to leave again.
All of this is speculation and so rather that using a firm line I have dotted in the horizon across the bay with the backdrop of the mountains.
