About

The former frame on St Jerome appears to be late eighteenth or early nineteenth century French, an Empire style frame in good, original condition.
The cleaning and restoration of the painting in 2002, motivated a re-assessment of the framing.
A new frame, based on a Flemish frame from c1534-1561, was constructed from European oak using pegged mortise and tenon joints, distemper paint and gold leaf.
