A Museum Quality Print of Saint Jerome as Scholar painted by El Greco. The artist painted this oil on canvas around the year of 1610 with the size of the original being 42 by 35 inches. El Greco painted at least 5 different versions of Saint Jerome of which we are aware of today. In this version, the Saint is shown in the red robes of a Cardinal, seated before an open book. This indicates his role as a translator of the Bible from Greek to Latin. His gaunt, sunken features and long white beard refer to his familiar guise as a penitent. This painting is remarkable in that El Greco combines the two different aspects of Saint Jerome, the scholarly and the ascetic
