Notes

Summary:
The reason for this enigma for this painting is that the theme was made to order for an exclusive patron and known only to him, and the painter. The, landscape attains the same importance as the human figure. Also unprecedented was the way his painting methods concentrated on colour effect. Giorgione created an illusion of airiness and atmosphere in his landscapes by using warm, delicately shaded colours over relatively large areas and by letting one hue flow into another similar one. Instead of the geometrically constructed central perspective, he employed the visual experience of an aerial perspective and its sfumato (smoky effect of light and shade), suggesting the spatial depths by colours and contours that melt into the distance.
