From 'Le Musée Français' (see 1875,0410.469 for comment).
According to Röthlisberger, the original painting may not be the work of Claude: 'Atypical of Claude are the numerous trees of the cluster on the right, the more romantic configuration of the fraing shrubs and trees on the left, the flocks consisting of goats alone, and the distance'.
