Quotation

Light hath so great Force in Painting, that the Gracefull Part consists much therein, for if the Lights are well dispos’d, there will be a Beauty in the Picture (although not a Perfection) notwithstanding the Draught be not Extraordinary ; for it is through the Vertue of that, that the Figures are brought off from the Flat.
            The Force hereof may be seen in the
Resurection of our Saviour (as hath been observ’d) in the Covent of the Church of Grace in Millain, by Bernard Zenale Triviliano ; where though the Muscles and other Necessary Complements for a perfect piece of Work are not seen, yet it gives a great satisfaction, by the strength and orderly Disposal of the Lights. The Power of it is likewise such, that it gives admirable Foreshortnings and Perpectives ; neither can Form, Motion, Proportion, Composition, Order or Figure have Perfection without it, like a Body without Situation or Spirit.
