Comment
Probably after a lost work by Giorgione, and related stylistically and formally to his known works as well. The mysterious subject is also Giorgionesque, and the monsters have been inspired by the works of Hieronymus Bosch in Venetian collections. The nude woman in the foreground appears in Giulio Campagnola's engraving of Venus Reclining in a Landscape of c. 1508-9. The engraving shows an almost painterly approach. Its subject has not yet been satisfactorily interpreted; for the iconography, see 'Il sogno di Marcantonio Raimondi", in Grafica d'Arte 78 (2009), pp. 10-13. For the print, see most recently Caroline Campbell in 'Michelangelo's Dream', Courtauld Galleries, London 2010, cat. no. 25.
