Shepherds Purse: painting - de Ribera "Adoration"

Return to main page


This is from the Spanish(?) painter Jusepe de Ribera's "Adoration of the Shepherds" from ca.1650. It is currently located at the Louvre, Paris, France. Although the view and cropping make it hard to be certain, the shepherd at the right may be wearing a pouch that would fall in the Shepherds Purse style (as well as a costrel on a shoulder strap), but it is equally possible that it's a different style of pouch.
