VERONESE, Paolo
(b. 1528, Verona, d. 1588, Venezia)

Sts Mark, James and Jerome with the Dead Christ Borne by Angels

1581-82
Oil on canvas, 365 x 181 cm
San Zulian, Venice

St Jerome is very probably the portrait of a donor. There is an exceptional quality of the artist's brushwork and a touching sentimentalism in the Christ of the Passion and the attentive angels.
