Moretto was keenly interested in Venetian art: in this expressive devotional painting of c.1530–1535 the landscape and figure types reveal his study of Titian. St Jerome (c.342–420) holds a stone to his breast, a reference to his acts of penitence. A variant is in the Accademia Carrara, Bergamo and a copy is in a private collection.
