Saint Jerome

Dublin Core

Title

Saint Jerome

Description

Ribera's etching "Saint Jerome and the Angel" is one his most repeated and popular prints. The artistic aspects of Ribera's Saint Jerome are characteristically Baroque in theme and formal approach. Ribera treats the figure of St. Jerome with a careful, almost stipple-like technique, in order to produce an effective naturalistic form. Ribera's endeavor to create a severely emaciated, aging saint was achieved by enriching the light and shadow of the body.
