Albrecht Dürer: 'Saint Jerome'

Explore the paintings

Explore related themes

This small double-sided devotional painting, which depicts Saint Jerome in a landscape on the front, and a scene with a heavenly body in a night sky on the reverse, probably dates from just after Dürer's first journey to Italy, in 1494-5, early in his career.

Although the saint's pose is conventional, Saint Jerome is set against an atmospheric landscape evocative of some of the most famous of Dürer's early watercolour landscapes.
