A high-relief bronze plaquette of St. Jerome, circle of Hubert Gerhard

An early 17th century German bronze plaquette depicting St. Jerome, executed in a manner influenced by the works of Hubert Gerhard.

Approximate size: 14 x 10.3 cm
Professionally framed

The unusually high quality and the stylistic features of this plaque in high relief suggest that it was made by a highly skilled bronze sculptor active in Southern Germany during the late Renaissance. Although Hubert Gerhard is not known to have produced small reliefs of this kind, Saint Jerome’s striking similarity to Gerhard’s figures, such as the Lazarus in his relief for the tomb of Dr. Thomas Mermann, places the present plaque within his circle. Other versions of the composition in boxwood, often attributed to the circle of Christoph Daniel Schenk (1633-1691) are also known alongside a pendant Mary Magdalene relief.

Condition: An extremely fine cast, possibly contemporary. The present cast may derive from the only other known example of the relief, in gilt bronze and belonging to a private collection. A handsome warm brown patina with some wear. An incuse reverse with two old auction labels numbered: 259 and 637.
