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.’
