      Saint Jerome Hearing the Trumpet of the Last Judgment.

      Etching, 1621. 315x237 mm; 12 3/8x9 3/8 inches. First state (of 5). Ex-collection unidentified collector (Lugt 961, lower left recto). A brilliant, richly-inked, early impression with all the fine details distinct and with very strong contrasts. With narrow to thread margins outside the border line.

      St. Jerome was the favorite subject of Ribera (1591-1652) who was born near Valencia, Spain, but produced most of his mature work, from the 1620s onward, in and around Naples (which was then part of the Spainish Empire). Bartsch 4.
