Today is the feast day of St Jerome who retired to the desert to lead a life of prayer & penance, and befriended a lion by removing a thorn from its paw. This tempera & oil painting on panel from the circle of Giovanni Bellini, on display in Gallery 43, shows the saint reading in a rocky wilderness (with the lion behind the rocks). In the background is a landscape typical of the northern Veneto. Devotional images were often given specific local settings to help with prayer and meditation.
