oil paint (paint), h 84.5cm × w 61cm More details

Jerome and Catherine sit on a grass-covered bench before some rose bushes. The two saints can be identified by their attributes: Jerome with the lion, and Catherine with the sword and the broken wheel. Catherine was the daughter of a king and served as a role model for wealthy courtly ladies. The costly heartshaped book she holds probably contains profane love songs. Are we looking at a portrait?
