St. Jerome in the Desert

Cima da Conegliano (Giovanni Battista Cima)

St. Jerome is a saint favoured by intellectuals as translator of the Latin Bible. Here the lion is shown as a small cat. On the back is the inscription Opus Lambert which has never been explained, as the work is considered on stylistic grounds to be by Cima da Conegliano. Nevertheless, Boschini, a 17th century art historian speaks of ‘A San Gerolamo hermitage, beautiful, Lamberti’s hand’. Future research may see the attribution changed.
