Creation: 1900

This photograph, attributed to Cav. P. Fiorentini, is one of the many detail images from the Contini-Volterra Photographic Archive. The work is an excerpt shot of Saint Jerome from Titian’s Saint Jerome in the Desert which hangs in the Pinacotecca di Brera in Milan. In the bottom right corner of the image, we see the sleeping lion that often accompanies depictions of Saint Jerome, a detail that may have gone unnoticed in black and white if not for the close-up image of the painting.
