Leonardo Da Vinci Painting: St Jerome!.jpg

~ Leonardo Da Vinci Cartoon St Jerome ~

:Leonardo's unfinished masterpiece.

 






 

SUBJECT MATTER:

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.




 

TYPE:

Historical Church figure, cartoon, chalk, pen and ink


 

INNOVATION INTRODUCED:

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.

 




 

AUTHENTICATION:

This is confirmed as Leonardo's work.
