In his dark study St. Jerome is deep in concentration at his desk. Before him, a crouching lion and a sleeping dog.

An aged holy man with a halo reads in his study surrounded by a sleeping lion, a dog, books, a skull, a hat, an hourglass, chairs, cushions and a table. Light streams in through a thick glass window.
