Oil painting on canvas, Herdsman with Sheep and Goats by Philipp Peter Roos, called 'Rosa da Tivoli' (St Goar 1657 – Rome 1706). A herdsman stands with sheep in the foreground in the centre and a horned cow on the left. A walled city can be seen on a rocky promontory in the left distance.
Probably one of three landscapes by ‘Rosa de Tively’ (‘the subject of them are groups of cattle and a shepherd’), bought by Charles Winn in 1830, from the dealer, Dr Oxley, at a cost of £25 for all three’; purchased by the National Trust by private treaty sale from Lord St Oswald in 2010
