The Buscot Park canvas does not include the charming distant view that we see to the left of the present picture, nor the cow grazing in the foreground. It too features a tower in the landscape at the right, but this slender campanile is instead an imposing square medieval tower. Heinemann dates the Buscot Park picture to 1510,3 although Zampetti (see Literature), in noting Previtali's debt to Lorenzo Lotto, believes it to be marginally later; all agree that the present canvas post-dates the Buscot Park picture and was likely executed around 1523.4
