Description

View of the neoclassical temple housing a statue of Aesculapius, at the Villa Borghese, Rome. The temple of Aesculapius stands on a small island where it was built in the Ionic style in the late eighteenth century. It is seen here from the bank among flourishing plants and trees, with what looks like a false acacia and a rockery in the foreground.

The caption reads in the original French: Le temple d’Esculape à la villa Borghèse.
