Catalogue Note

This composition contains elements familiar from Dughet's paintings: tree-lined river banks, waterfall and shepherd with a flock, but the scene is quite enclosed, without the distant vista familiar from his paintings.  This could indicate it was a study made on the spot.  Similar drawings in black chalk on blue paper are in Düsseldorf1 and the British Museum.2
