Saint Jerome in his Study by Antonello Da Messina
Saint Jerome in his Study
"Stealing a look through the open window of St Jerome's study, the viewer sees the saint absorbed in his reading. Only the lion on the right pauses in his tracks to acknowledge the outside world. It is possible that Antonello was influenced by aspects of Netherlandish painting; details such as the objects on the shelves, the tiled floor, the birds perched on the windowsill and the quality of the light are reminiscent of the intense realism of paintings by Rober Campin and Jan van Eyck. There is no proof that Antonello ever lefty Italy, but he seems to have been familiar with the techniques of the Netherlandish masters.
"Several authorities believe he was taught oil painting techniques by master Van Eyck himself, and then brought the 'secret' method to Italy. More likely, Antonello was influenced by Flemish artists in Milan. In 1475-6 he was in Venice, where his innovative technique greatly influenced Giovanni Bellini."
