More pictures of St Jerome in his study

The appeal of St Jerome to me is clearly the archetypal image of the scholar. There is much to be said for the view that I would probably be quite happy to spend most of my life in my study. I was surprised reading more about the Marquis de Sade's time in the Bastille that he actually lived quite luxuriously - he had his library, his servants, his own furniture - doesn't sound too bad really.

I could do with a peacock for my study

Wierd looking lion from a very early woodcut

One of my least favourites - this is in the National Gallery in London

I don't wear anything like this when I am working in my study!
