Saint Jerome
Oil on oak panel. 1530 - 1540
Massys, Jan (Workshop Of)

The workshop of Jan Massys (c. 1509-1575) in Amberes produced a number of copies of this image based on a protoype by Quinten Massys, Jan’s father. Notable is the saint’s powerful look, which bestows dignity upon him. In line with new humanist ideas, the Church Father’s appearance of an aged scholar is abandoned, while the reference to the transience of life made through the skull and the depictio

With the owners or house servants away, the animals sneak into the larder, giving free rein to their instincts. This leads to a fight.

They were also frequent in the literature of proverbs, where they were interpreted as moral allusions to the abandonment of responsibilities and their consequen
