Here is another splendid medieval study (similar to but more elegant than this one): St. Augustine in his study by Vittore Carpaccio (1502)
Of this painting, Henry James writes:
"This work is a pearl of sentiment, and I may add without being fantastic a ruby of colour. It unites the most masterly finish with a kind of universal largeness of feeling, and and he who has it well in his memory will never hear the name of Carpaccio without a throb of almost personal affection."
