St. Jerome in the Landscape

Alessandro Magnasco

Alessandro Magnasco - St. Jerome in the Landscape
Expressive brushwork animated by a dynamic interplay of light and shade is a key characteristic of Magnasco’s style. The fresh unrestrained and almost palpably changeable landscape that dominates the painting acts in harmony with the figure of the ascetic saint sitting bellow the cross and contemplating the vanity of our ephemeral world.
