St. Jerome in his study.

Stuck by upper corners under passe-partout.

Splendid copy by Wierix, in a first state, of Dürer's outstanding representation of St. Jerome in his study with lion and cardinal's hat beside him. With window handles and the lock of the chest different from Dürer's original, but characteristic of Wierix' reproduction.
