Trained by his adoptive father, profoundly influenced by Giorgione and the early works of Titian, Campagnola was briefly the leading graphic artist in Ven-ice before taking up permanent residence in Padua (1523) and becoming its prin-cipal painter. His drawings depend closely upon Titian’s and are regularly con-fused with them and those of numerous followers and imitators. This drawing owes to Titian’s types, dynamism, and pen work of the early 1510s. Distinctive, and immature, are the adherence to a conservative Venetian format for the sacra conversazione, the odd spatial relationships, and the overcharacterization of types. It must be one of the precocious efforts that helped establish Campagnola’s fame.
