This painting by an unknown European artist represents one of Rome’s most famous landmarks, the Arch of Titus. The triumphal arch, located on the Via Sacra just to the southeast of the Roman Forum, was constructed by the emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his brother Titus to commemorate the capture and sack of Jerusalem in 70 a.d., the culminating event of the Jewish War.
