Concert champêtre

Girolamo Romanino Italian

Not on view

Romanino probably trained as a painter in his native Brescia
but soon came under the influence of Venetian painting. The
subject of this sketch, a group of ladies and a satyr playing
music in a landscape, was inspired by works by Giorgione
and Titian, the predominant Venetian painters of the early
sixteenth century. In this sheet the artist tried more than one
compositional idea, changing the satyr at far right from a
standing to a seated position. The drawing has been connected
to frescoes with similar themes that Romanino painted in
the Castello del Buonconsiglio in Trent in 1531–32.
