Notes:
1. A very fine, strong, well contrasted impression.
2. St. Jerome (from about 347 to 419 or 420) had translated the Bible into Latin and was one of the greatest, early scholars.
3. This work, executed three years before the engraving of 1514 of the same subject, fits into a group of tonally treated woodcuts which Dürer executed between 1508-1509 and in 1511. These woodcuts included the series The Small Passion, woodcuts added to the Three Large Books (“Die drei grossen Bücher”) published or re-published in 1511: the Apocalypse, the Large Passion and the Life of the Virgin, and finally only six single woodcuts including this St. Jerome in His Cell.
