Information about author
"The Herd" is a typical example of Philipp Peter Roos' animalistic painting. It can be attributed to his Italian period of creativity when the master formed the subject of his works. It depicts a young shepherd with a dog who leads cattle to pasture. In the background is a panoramic view of the hills on the outskirts of Rome. The painting is executed in the artist's typical brown colour scheme.
