Traditionally attributed to Giorgione, The Pastoral Concert is now considered a work from Titian's youth. This mysterious painting is meant to be an allegory of Poetry, whose symbols - the flute and the pouring water - are shared between two nude women of ideal beauty. These unreal figures exist only in the imaginations of the two men they inspire, according to a taste widespread in Venice for simultaneous depictions of the visible and invisible.
