Leonardo Da Vinci Painting
TITLE: LEONARDO DA VINCI PAINTING ST JEROME
DATE: 1481 (UNFINISHED)
DA VINCI'S AGE: 29
~ Leonardo Da Vinci Cartoon St Jerome ~
:Leonardo's unfinished masterpiece.
St Jerome was a doctor of the Church who lived around 400 years AD.
St Jerome produced an important translation of the bible from the languages of Hebrew and Greek into Latin.
Historical Church figure, cartoon, chalk, pen and ink
The detail of Jerome reflects a deep interest and understanding of the anatomy of the male body.
The figure is drawn in the foreground of a jagged rocky plain and a lion at his feet (there is a belief that he helped a lion in pain by removing a splinter from its paw). This gives the picture an unsettling feel to it.
The humble St Jerome is also drawn from an unusual raised side angle.
This is confirmed as Leonardo's work.
