    The pupil of Giulio Campagnola, whose surname he adopted, Domenico was trained in early 16th-Century Venice in the circle of Titian and Giorgione, whose pastoral idiom was immensely influential on his work. The present sheet belongs to a series of drawings depicting events from the Life of Christ, now scattered; other examples of this group are Christ in the House of Simon, at Chatsworth (M. Jaffe, The Devonshire Collection of Italian Drawings: Venetian and North Italian Schools, London, 1994, p. 73, no. 778), and the Landscape with the Temptation of Christ at the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro (M. Joannides, A loan exhibition of Master Drawings from the De Pass Collection, The Royal Cornwall Museum, London, 1994, p. 20, no. 5).
