More About this Item

Description: The origin of the painter Girolamo da Treviso is uncertain although Giorgio Vasari makes mention of him in his "Vite". It is possible that he descended from the artist family Pennacchi from Treviso since he is occasionally called Girolamo Pennacchi. His works are closely related to the Venetian tradition of "Giorgonismo", but they have their own style entirely, particularly recognisable by his figures. A painting comparable to ours is in the Lakeview Museum (Arizona, USA). Here we see a similar St. Catherine in profile. The view to the landscape at right is related. After his stays in Bologna and at the court of Mantua,
Girolamo's life experienced an unexpected turn in 1538. That year he entered the services of King Henry VIII of England as a military engineer. In 1544, he participated in the first attack on Boulogne-sur-Mer where he was killed.
We thank Bernard Aikema for the confirmation that this painting is a work by Girolamo da Treviso.
