Homage to a Poet
Follower of Giorgione

The subject is obscure but the wreath worn by the enthroned figures perhaps indicates a poet. There is a hermit high on the rock to the left.

The painting was long considered as the product of Giorgione's studio. More recently it has been suggested that it is an imitation of Giorgione made in about 1540.
