Italianate Landscape with a Goat and Sheep

Oil on canvas, 84 x 104 cm
Private collection

The subject matter of the painting: an Italianate landscape with a goat and sheep, with a man on horseback and classical ruins beyond, is entirely characteristic for Rosa da Tivoli, who gained his name from the Italianate landscapes in which he set his animals.
