    Eckersberg painted Una Ciociara in 1816, the last year of a four-year stay in Rome. In terms of its technique, it represents one of the high points of his career. From detailed notes in his diary, we know that the painting took him two weeks to complete, that he hired the subject’s costume, and how much it cost. The artist took the work back to Denmark with him, using it in his teaching and having his pupils copy it.
