Kenyon Cox, After Titian's "Madonna of the Rabbit", 1878-1882, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Ambrose Lansing, 1983.114.14
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.
