Description

The painting depicts Saint Jerome, a Doctor of the Church and one of the most beloved theologians in Christian art for domestic devotion. In this moment, his prayers of adoration directed towards the crucifix he holds in his hands lead his thoughts - and his gaze - towards the sky, thick with dark clouds, much like those seen behind the cave where he has withdrawn for meditation.
