Seite 48 - Cicero remarks, that not to know what has been transacted in former times, is to continue always a child. If no use is made of the labours of past ages, the world must remain always in the infancy of knowledge.
Seite 2 - I do not mean that I would have your son a perfect painter ; to be that to any tolerable degree, will require more time than a young gentleman can spare from his other improvements of greater moment; but so much insight into perspective, and skill in drawing, as will enable him to represent tolerably on paper any thing he sees, except faces, may, I think, be got in a little time...

Seite 27 - Angelo's works have a strong, peculiar, and marked character : they seem to proceed from his own mind entirely, and that mind so rich and abundant, that he never needed, or seemed to disdain, to look abroad for foreign help. Raffaelle's materials are generally borrowed, though the noble structure is his own.
Seite 6 - Rubens, who extracted his principles from their works, admitted many subordinate lights. The same rules, which have been given in regard to the regulation of groups of figures, must be observed in regard to the grouping of lights ; that there shall be a superiority of one over the rest, that they shall be separated, and varied in their shapes, and that there should be at least three lights : the secondary lights ought, for the sake of harmony and union, to be of nearly equal brightness, though not...
