Not illustrated. 1907 Excerpt: ...of a few enlightened artists that not only was it a very beautiful form, but the spirit within it was equally so, and full of innumerable possibilities in all its fanciful wayward moods, its tender loving ways, its inconsequent joys and griefs. With the art of Correggio and Titian the climax, so far as it concerned the Italian school, was reached. After this the child was treated with less respect. The sugared daintiness of Carlo Dolci is as little to our taste as the vulgarity of some artists of the Roman and Neapolitan schools. What degradation the conception of childhood suffered is well expressed in a picture by Baroccio.1 The theme of this, which is a group of the Holy Family, is the tormenting of an unfortunate bird by a cat. This 'intellectual treat' seems to be greatly enjoyed by all the figures in the group, even the little Christ himself. Contrast with this idea that of Raphael's Madonna of the Goldfinch, which was painted barely a century earlier. Where is the reverence with which Raphael painted the child Jesus? The tenderness of the child's heart 1 'Our Lady of the Cat' National Gallery, No. 29. has hardened into deliberate cruelty. For whether it is the Christ child or any other child whom Baroccio thus shows as taking delight in the torture of a fellow-creature is not the point. If for the Holy Child we were to substitute the humblest peasant boy, would not the degradation of childhood be just the same? Yet let us not hastily award the prize to Raphael, to Correggio, or to Titian. The tournament is not over; 'tis but midday. There are others waiting to enter the lists; hardy Northerners from Germany and Holland, courtly Spaniards and Frenchmen, and from Britain too, men of renown. Let us, therefore, withhold our judgment. CHAPTER VI FROM the ...
