More information

In his 'Lives of the Artists' (1550/1568) Vasari wrote that Giorgione "firmly believed that painting alone, with the colours themselves, without studying anything on paper, was the true and best method". Perhaps this explains why this is the only surviving drawing generally believed to be by Giorgione. Although it is not a preliminary study, there is a strong resemblance to his equally famous painting the 'The Tempest'.
