Joachim Patinir: the first landscape painter

Landscape with St Jerome


Patinir was stated by Durer to be ‘the first landscape painter’ and indeed in this picture the figure of St Jerome is dwarfed by the immense and impressive landscape surrounding him.  The religious content of painting is now being usurped  by nature in all its detail from the grasses and trees in the foreground to the blue mountains and lit sky in the distance.
