TIZIANO Vecellio
(b. 1490, Pieve di Cadore, d. 1576, Venezia)

Rustic Idyll

Oil on panel, 46 x 44 cm
Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge

This small panel may be one of Titian's earliest independent productions. It was formerly attributed to Giorgione and, indeed, the subject is directly comparable to that of the Tempest by Giorgione.
