Santa Maria del Popolo, Rome

This altarpiece, surrounded by a frame decorated with floral motifs and small capitals, forms the centre of the decorative program for the Chapel Della Rovere in Santa Maria del Popolo. Pinturicchio and Tiberio d'Assisi worked together to create the frescoes in the chapel which show events in the life of St Jerome.
