Bartholomeus Breenbergh, Capriccio met Romeinse ruïnes, beelden en een haven, collectie Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

In and around Rome, the Bentvueghels see lots of architectural and sculptural works from Classical Antiquity (or the remnants thereof). They like to make drawings of them, which they later use as a basis for their paintings. These paintings are sometimes made many years after leaving Rome, and the composition is often fused with fantasy, as in this painting here.
