Miss Sedgwick, in her "Letters from Abroad," vol. 2, p. 237, thus describes the original of this picture: "There is a masterpiece of Domenichino; a boy of four or five years old in a blue kirtle, is standing with his hands folded in prayer. The 'man of sin' is crouching at his feet: and though the child does not see him, he betrays a consciousness of the presence of evil and a feeling of weakness and danger. Behind him stands a beautiful young angel in all the repose of security, pointing to the glory above, and, interposing his shielding wing between the devil and the boy." [P. 8.]
