More about this artwork
The title of the picture, conceived in the 19th century, conceals the work’s true meaning. The cooing doves and the shepherd’s bagpipes are symbols of love and carnal desire. The subject is the idyllic, openly amorous life of shepherds, which could also be seen in contemporary plays at that time.
