Comment
Similarly to the closely related chiaroscuro woodcut representing a Tree with two Goats (Bartsch XII.151.20), attributed today to Domenico Campagnola, both the design and the print had traditionally been attributed to Titian. On the basis of similarities with Niccolo Boldrini's woodcuts after Campagnola's designs, Rosand and Muraro argue for the attribution of this chiaroscuro to Campagnola. They note that the quite empty and simple landscape is characteristic of him and point out that the combination of pastoral motives and antique elements suggests it was executed c. 1530.
