Formed among Michelangelo’s followers in Rome, Franco possessed the most disciplined and idealized drawing of any Venetian artist of the period. He was also the most prolific etcher in sixteenth-century Italy. Most of his prints include engraving and suggest the very regular appearance of works in that technique. This Saint Jerome is one of a number of late efforts that responded to painted examples––here, Titian––and employed etching alone to more varied and personal effect.
