St. Jerome in the Desert

Montagna (Bartolomeo Cincani)

Here the saint is in his cave, and we see in the foreground his red hat, as he had also
been a cardinal. He is flanked by his customary lion, and set within a landscape. Near the bottom there is a lake, and a beautiful staircase on which monks can be seen climbing the stairs towards the church. The overarching theme of this group of paintings in Room VII is to immerse the figure in the landscape.
