|Adam and Eve, 1623, Domenichino. |
To say he was influenced by Michelangelo (who wasn't at the time?)
would be an understatement. Here such "influence" borders on plagiarism.
|Domenichino Self-portrait, 1615|
|A Virgin with a Unicorn, ca. 1602-1605, Domenichino|
|The Last Communion of Saint Jerome,|
|The Creation of Man (detail), 1512, Michelangelo|
|The Communion of St. Jerome, 1591-92, Agostino Carracci. |
Compare this with Domenichino's version (above, right).
Plagiarism or "praiseworthy imitation?" You decide.
