Quotation

Appelles added the last Perfection [ndr : à la peinture] by the help of Geometry and Arithmetick ; without which, as his Master Pamphilus would say, no Man could prove a Painter ; and Bernard Lovinus would say, a Painter without Perspective was like a Doctor without Grammer.
            And indeed it is a Compound of many Arts ; as
Geomitry, Architecture, Arithmetick, Perspective, &c. for a Painter cannot perform without Lines, Superficies, Profunditys, Thickness and Geometricall Figures.
            Nor can
Churches, Pallaces, Amphiteaters, Bridges, Ports and other Buildings be Represented without Skill in Architecture.
            Nor without
Arithmetick can he Understand the Proportion of Mans Body, to take it in any fise ; or the Proportion of other Things either Artificiall or Naturall.

AFTER him [ndr : Lysippe de Sicyone] succeded his Scholar Pamphilus de Macedonia, the first that improv’d himself, and the ART, by his Study of good Literature, and especially in Arithmetick and Geometry ; without which, he was of Opinion it was impossible to be a perfect and compleat Painter. His Authority so far prevail’d, that by a strict and perpetual Edict, the States of Greece ordain’d, that all Gentlemens Sons, and Freeborn, should go to the Painting School, and there be taught First, above all Things, the Art Diagraphice : That no Slave should have that Privilege, or under a Penalty be taught by any the ART, or Mystery of Painting ; and that it should be accounted and rang’d in the first Degree of the liberal Sciences.

31 Nadien der Griecken en Romeynen Zele

Dat sy verboden met straffen bevele, {Leest hier van in’t leven van Pamphilus den Macedonischen Schilder.}
Datmen niet en soude, dan alleen
Ele Gheboren kinderen, t’schilderen leeren,
Soo betaemt dan noch wel, de Const ter eeren,
Alle deucht en beleeftheyt hun beneven, {Plutarchus seght ooc, dat Emilius Paulus, onder ander edel Consten, zijn Sonen leerde beelt-houwen en schilderen.}
Die nu den Edelen Pinceel aencleven.

Het andere ’t welck Plinius in desen Pamphilus aenmerckt, is dat sijne scholieren tien jaeren aen hem verbonden bleven; hy socht den goeden naeme sijner schole boven alle dinghen te behouden, niet willende dat de leerkinderen souden bestaen te vlieghen eerse vleughelen hadden; dies plaght hy se ontrent de teycken-Konst en andere noodsaeckelicke gronden vry wat langhe besigh te houden, sonder te lijden dat sy door eenighe onbesuyste goed-dunckenheyd de hand te vroegh an ’t verwen souden slaen. Wy en souden dese voorsichtigheyd der ouder Meesters niet hebben aengheroert, ’t en waer saecke dat vele hedensdaeghsche Meesters gantsch verkeerdelick te werck ginghen, door een eerghierighe haestigheyd beghinnende met het ghene laetst behoort te sijn, seght Quintilianus {Lib.

Quotation

Of the Necessity and Definition of Proportion.


It was not without just Cause, that the antient
Græcians (at which time the Art of Painting had fully attained to his Perfection, by the Industry of Timantes, Eusenidas, Aristides, Eupompus, Sicyonias and Pamphilus, the famous Macedonian Painter, and Master of Apelles, who also was the first learned Painter directing his Workes by the Rules of Art, above any of his Predecessors, and well considering that whatsoever was made without measure and proportion, could never carry with it any such congruity as might represent either Beauty or Grace to the judicious beholder) were wont to say, that it was impossible to make any tolerable, much less any Commendable Picture, without the help of Geometry and Arithmetick, wherefore they required the Knowledge thereof, as a thing most necessary, which saying was also approved by Philip Macedo. And surely it is impossible (to omitt the meere Artizans) that he who is ignorant of these two Sciences, should understand the exact measure and proprotion of any probable or true Body, the necessity of which proportions shall be shewed hereafter.

{In welchen Studen jeder von den Alten oder antichen bäst qualificirt gewesen.} Es ist dieses bey unserer Kunst gewöhnlich/ auch so wol an den antichen/ als modernen/ zu ersehen/ daß der eine in einem/ der andere in etwas anders/ die wenigsten in allem/ excelliret und Meister gewesen. {Die Griechen.} Dann Apollodorus legte sonderlich der Schönheit zu. Zeuxis machte zu große Köpfe/ ware aber ein künstlicher Obst-Mahler. Eumarus gewöhnte sich/ alles nach dem Leben nachzubilden. Protogenes konte erstlich nur Schiffe mahlen. Apelles war in allem zierlich. Parrhasius ware gut in seinen Umrißen; Daemon, reich von invention; Timanthes verständig in allen seinen Werken/ auch immer verborgenen Sinns und Meinung; Pamphilus, gelehrt; Nicomachus, geschwind; Athenion, tieffsinnig; Nicophanes, sauber und nett; Amulius schön mit Farben; Pausias, munter in Bildung der Kinder und Blumen; Asclepidorius gut in dem messen und in den proportionen; Amphion, von Anordnung, Serapio, vernünftig in großen; Pireikus, in kleinen Sachen; Antiphilus in klein- und großen ; Dyonisius, konte nur Menschen mahlen; Euphranor, alles; Nicias, Thiere/ besonderlich Hunde.
