Do you know of any paintings that depict the translation process or show the translator himself? I'm trying to find some links between translation and art history. Thank you!

For starters... May 12, 2008

Here is a painting showing St. Jerome in action:

http://www.aug.edu/augusta/iconography/december2001/jerome.html

And then I found this scholarly article on the depiction of interpreters: “Iconography of Interpreters in the Conquest of the Americas” that also includes various paintings.

Enjoy!
