Saint Jerome

1640 - 1645. Oil on canvas

Saint Jerome is seen in his retreat, studying and reading while listening to the trumpet of the Last Judgment. This is a characteristic work from Herrera’s mature period, which was characterised by a vigorous, energetic brushstroke and human types imbued with vitality and inner force. Also typical of the artist is the construction of the tunic, a fluid, almost monochrome area of paint with soft, luminous folds.
