Jacopo Palma treated the Adoration of the Shepherds in several paintings, including one in the church of Santi Nazaro e Celso in Verona, and one recorded on the Milan art market (S. Mason Rinaldi, Palma il Giovane. L’opera completa, Milan, 1984, p. 94, fig. 1, no. 595, fig. 446). Two drawings in the same technique also show the group of angels descending from heaven and the shepherds framing the composition in the foreground (formerly in the C.R. Rudolf collection; see ibid., figs. 246-247).
We are grateful to Stefania Mason Rinaldi for confirming the attribution to Palma il Giovane on the basis of a photograph and for suggesting a date of circa 1600.
