"A View of Vesuvius from Naples" is a painting by English artist Joseph Wright of Derby, created in 1790. It depicts the city of Naples with Mount Vesuvius in the background, casting a glow over the city at night. The painting shows the bustling harbour, with boats and ships, as well as the illuminated city. The painting showcases Wright's skill in capturing the dramatic effect of light, both natural and artificial, and conveys a sense of the energy and activity of the city. The painting is considered an important work in the artist's oeuvre and reflects the growing fascination with the natural world and its power during the Enlightenment era.
