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

Vos, Paul de

With the owners or house servants away, the animals sneak into the larder, giving free rein to their instincts. This leads to a fight. Scenes of animal fights in domestic settings were customary in mid-seventeenth-century Flemish painting. They were also frequent in the literature of proverbs, where they were interpreted as moral allusions to the abandonment of responsibilities and their consequen

This painting has particular documentary interest as it shows the inside of Saint Peter’s transept and chancel before work began on Bernini’s Throne of Saint Peter (1656).

In keeping with the style of his final years in Palencia, this Flemish painter increases the size of the three main figures- Christ blesses Lazurus, who rises from the tomb. His hand rests on the top of the coffin and his eyes have transformed into black pearls. One of his sisters —Martha, according to the Gospel of Saint John (11, 38-44)— kneels and extends her arms to him. The event takes place

In the Middle Ages, the “trial by fire” was used as a means of establishing the truth; miracles thus prevailed over rational arguments. Here, one of Saint Dominic’s books is placed in the fire together with a book by the Albigensian doctors, in order to demonstrate the errors of their doctrine. His book is miraculously cast out by the flames, which devour that of the heretics.

Stylistically, it resembles his later paintings except for the canon of its figures, which are much shorter here than in posterior works. Besides the interest Bouts shows in landscape from t
