Landscape detail from 16th century painting by Joachim Patiner
This is a tiny detail from the landscape in the distance, from the central panel of an altarpiece triptych painted by Flemish artist Joachim Patiner in 1512 - 15. The painting depicts St Jerome in the wilderness, with a richly layered landscape behind him, stretching through idyllic countryside to the sea and rocky blue mountains. Patiner was the first Flemish artist to consider himself a landscape painter, and he more or less invented the 'world landscape', which became popular in Renaissance art.

This pendant is made with extra-deep 11mm glass, which gives an intriguingly lively magnifying effect. The pendant setting is made from metal alloy and the glass cabochon is 25mm across.
Choose a 24” (60cm) silver tone chain, or an 18” (45cm) black leather cord or black organza and cotton cord.
A pendant on a chain or organza-&-cotton cord comes in a sturdy card gift box; a pendant on a leather cord comes in an organza bag so as not to distort the leather by tight folding.
