More about this artwork
The exact subject of this picture, which mixes landscape painting, genre painting and history painting, has not been identified. To Schack, the landscape recalled that of the Alban Hills, a region on the edge of the Roman Campagna rich in mythological associations. He thought the picture could withstand comparison with Old Masters: ‘Even amid works by Murillo and Giorgione the painting would not lose all that much, whereas most modern pictures ought to fear nothing more than such life-endangering proximity.’
