Saint Jerome in Penitence

circa 1545
16th century
38.6 cm x 26.7 cm (15 3/16 in. x 10 1/2 in.)

Attributed to Luca Cambiaso (Moneglia (Genoa), 1527 - 1585, El Escorial (Madrid)) Primary

Object Type: drawing
Artist Nationality: Europe, Italian
Medium and Support: Pen and brown ink over black chalk
Credit Line: Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, The Suida-Manning Collection, 2017
Accession Number: 2017.945

The Mannings proposed that this drawing and a Hercules in the same bizarre, rather unattractive hand were juvenile drawings by Cambiaso. While the attribution has not been seconded, it has great merit. The continuous, rhythmic pen work reflects a naïve understanding of the drawings of Perino del Vaga. And the identical isolated and quavering musculature, the hairpin articulation of the forearm, and the irregular fill of hatching characterize a very early drawing in the Prado that is closely related to Cambiaso’s frescoes in the palace of Antonio Doria and already unmistakable in certain mannerisms.
