Head of St Jerome
- Art Funded
- 25.2 x 12 cm
This drawing is a study for the head of St. Jerome in this painting and is exactly the same size as the finished head which suggests that it may have served as a guide during the completion of the picture. Since it is unmarked by a stylus or by pricking, it cannot have been used as a cartoon in the usual sense.
