The typical manner of depicting the trees and structuring the space, as well as the use of mauve wash, correspond to other landscape drawings by Cousin (see D. Cordellier, ‘Style et facture des dessins de Jean Cousin Fils’, in Jean Cousin père et fils. Une Famille de peintres au XVIe siècle, exhib. cat., Paris, Musée du Louvre, 2013, pp. 226-239). The head of a figure at lower left indicates that the landscape must have been part of a larger composition; two other, very similar fragments are at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, and the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris (ibid., p. 235, figs. 282, 283).
