St Jerome in the Desert

Oil on panel, 49 x 34 cm
Private collection

This painting was among some seventeen panels by the artist forming the dismantled altarpiece (now lost) for the church of San Francesco, Monte Santo. The very linear draftsmanship and angularity of figure drawing here shows Vittore's style to be much indebted to that of his brother, Carlo.
