St. Augustine in His Study, by Vittore Carpaccio, 1507.

Relates to: 

St. Augustine in His Study, by Vittore Carpaccio, 1507. This work by Carpaccio, begun in 1502 and completed in 1507, portrays Augustine in his studio. Augustine looks startled, and rightly so: Saint Jerome has just appeared to him in order to announce his death and ascent to heaven. Jerome takes the form of a luminous shape in the window, the object of Augustine’s gaze. The work is now housed in the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni in Venice, Italy.
