Jan van Remmerswale (: Reymerswale, Marinus van)

Saint Jerome in his Study

Mid-XVIcentury. Oil on panel. Not on display

Later variant of the painting Saint Jerome in his Study (1533, Madrid, Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, inv. 611). Its painter, who has been tentatively identified as Jan van Remmerswale, worked with his own patterns developed from Marinus’ compositions, but used a different technique to transfer them onto the panel. In contrast to Marinus, his paintings show a linear underdrawing executed in a fluid medium, which meticulously repeats contours, shadows, and elements of the surface modelling, such as wrinkles and hair, and works them out with a certain speed and assured brushstrokes. This suggests that the painter developed his own variants from either Marinus’ cartoons or directly used his paintings to elaborate them (Christine Seidel in Marinus. Painter from Reymerswale, Museo Nacional del Prado, 2021, pp. 94-97).
