Description: A Pastoral Scene with Cowherds. This landscape follows the format adopted by Zuccarelli in many of his paintings. In the foreground figures in pastoral costume are grouped around a fountain, while behind them the plain opens to reveal distant mountains. The heavy drapery of the figures' costumes gives them a timeless quality, which is echoed in the fountain set in an antique arch. While conveying the scale of the landscape, these figures also effectively bring a point of interest to the composition.
