The Incomplete Work of Leonardo da Vinci, San Gerolamo

The Incomplete Work by Leonardo da Vinci, San Gerolamo. In 1482 Leonardo da Vici left one of his works unfinished: San Gerolamo, now kept in the Vatican Museums. The Vatican Museums are located on Vatican Avenue in Rome, within the Vatican City State.

Along with the Adoration of the Magi, San Gerolamo is one of the works that always attracts students of the Leonardo´s technic.

In this painting, oil on the table, it is noted, in fact, the accurate study of the muscles and tendons dented in the impetus of prayer and penitence that characterize the artist’s painting.

San Gerolamo is the desert penitent hermit, who, kneeling and dressed in a few rags, holds in his right hand the stone he uses to strike his chest and with his left hand indicates himself. His face looks upward towards a crucifix that has not yet been painted, but one can see the rod on his right.

For Leonardo, the expression of feelings was closely linked to the knowledge of anatomy, in fact, the skull bone shows all the intensity of the moment and the feelings felt by the penitent San Gerolamo.
