Title : The Innocent Salome [the author argues that early painters, such as Giotto, depicted Salome as detached and passive; it is only with Donatello that Salome displays a moral conscience, showing distress at the fate of John the Baptist; in the sixteenth century Salome takes on the role of seductress and thereby assumes responsibility for the death of John the Baptist].
