Firework Display at the Castle Sant' Angelo in Rome

Joseph Wright

When Joseph Wright visited Rome, he was very impressed by the firework displays, his favorite coming from the roof of the Castel Sant' Angelo. I love the way he creates a vignette around the fireworks while still keeping the outer edges visible. I applaud him on his use of lighting because he creates this effect that causes the lights to appear as if they are actually glowing. Overall, I find this painting to have a warm atmosphere that is pleasing to the eye.
