"Saint Jerome in His Study" by Antonello da Messina

Located in the National Gallery in London, this exquisite little painting (46x37cm.), demonstrates all the painting genius of the Sicilian artist Antonello da Messina. From its photographic verisimilitude to its stunning representation of varied surface texture, to its glowing depth of color, “St. Jerome” is the first Italian painting to completely adopt the Flemish Renaissance style. Either painted directly in Venice or brought there by the artist as a demonstration piece in the 1470s, the painting immediately influenced the work of contemporary Venetian painters, particularly Giovanni Bellini. Buona visione!
