Did you know?

Domenico Campagnola's woodcuts such as this were made with the purpose of imitating his own pen and ink drawings.


Landscape with Saint Jerome was apparently inspired by Titian's woodcut of a similar subject of about 1525 to 1530. Campagnola, however, reduced the size of the figures and animals so that the subject serves as the excuse for a landscape composition.
