Catalogue Note

St. Jerome's large stature amplified by the voluminous folds of his cloak, his square face with prominent eyebrows and cheekbones and his meticulously detailed headgear are characteristic of Champagne sculptors of the second half of the 16th century, notably in and around Troyes, at the time of Dominique Florentin (circa 1506-1565) and François Gentil (1510/20-1581/82).
