Luce Center Label

Kenyon Cox painted this small, sketchlike image while studying in Paris. Although Cox trained with well-known French artists, his works were largely influenced by Greek, Roman, and Renaissance art. After Titian's "Madonna of the Rabbit" is a copy of a painting in the Louvre by Italian Renaissance artist Titian (about 1490-1576). The triangular composition, realistic subjects, and use of dramatic light and shadow are representative of the Renaissance art that Cox admired.
