Catalogue Note

Tobias Nickel, who was working on a catalogue of Campagnola drawings, wrote to Ralph Holland in 2002, remarking that this drawing fits with a group of religious subjects, similar in style, composition and handling, which seemed to him to date from the 1540s.  Ralph Holland had been cautious in his attribution of the drawing, but gradually became more convinced that it was autograph.  He compared it with a drawing of a Fête champêtre in the Albertina.1
