Agostino Carracci - Heilige Hieronymus

description

Summary

De heilige Hieronymus geknield in gebed met een crucifix in zijn hand. Voor hem ligt zijn kardinaalshoed. Op de achtergrond links ligt een leeuw op een rots.

Printmaking in woodcut and engraving came to Northern Italy within a few decades of their invention north of the Alps. Engraving probably came first to Florence in the 1440s, the goldsmith Maso Finiguerra (1426–64) used the technique. Italian engraving caught the very early Renaissance, 1460–1490. Print copying was a widely accepted practice, as well as copying of paintings viewed as images in their own right.
