The other picture in this pair, entitled Satyrs, bearing gifts, is in the Hermitage.

The name of the picture has been altered at various times: Shepherd and Shepherdess making Music, Faun and Shepherdess making music, An Offering for Pan.

Castiglione turned for the first time to mythological subjects in the 1640s when he was working in Rome and strongly influenced by Poussin.
