The Brightness of the Sun
This positioning of the sun in the middle of the painting is something that Turner also adopted.

It embraces all that Rome meant to him as the historic centre, first of the Roman Empire, then of its successor, the Christian Church, and then of the great artists of the Renaissance — crowned by Raphael, who stands in the foreground.
