Original information about the work of art by the museum (© Copyright - by Art Institute Chicago - Art Institute Chicago)

Best known for his Lives of the Artists, a monumental compendium of biographies, Giorgio Vasari was a successful architect and a prolific painter for the Medici dukes of Florence. As a learned artist, he imparted an allegorical element to this frequently depicted episode from the life of Saint Jerome. The saint—a scholar, translator of the Bible, and advocate of monasticism—vividly described the tempting visions that assailed him when he retreated to the desert to meditate. In this painting, Jerome contemplates a crucifix; his visions are personified as Venus, the goddess of love, accompanied by cupids. Although Venus seems to flee, one of the troublesome cupids still aims his arrow at the saint. The work is unfinished: the black-chalk grid, used as aid in enlarging and transferring the preparatory drawing onto the panel, is still visible through the initial thinly applied paint layers.

The print poster is suited for framing your art copy with the help of a custom frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm around the work of art, which facilitates the framing.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with a true depth. A non-reflective surface creates a modern look. For our Aluminium Dibond print, we print the favorite artwork onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum. The bright and white sections of the original artpiece shimmer with a silky gloss, however without the glow.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, which is often referred to as a print on plexiglass, changes an original artwork into great wall decoration. Your favorite work of art is being manufactured with modern UV direct printing technology.
  • The canvas print: The canvas direct print is a printed cotton canvas stretched on a wood stretcher.
