When therefore we are to make a Judgment in what Degree of Goodness a Picture or Drawing is we should consider its Kind first, and then its several Parts. A History is preferrable to a Landscape, Sea-Piece, Animals, Fruit, Flowers, or any other Still-Life, pieces of Drollery, &c ; the reason is, the latter Kinds may Please, and in proportion as they do so they are Estimable, and that is according to every one’s Taste, but they cannot Improve the Mind, they excite no Noble Sentiments ; at least not as the other naturally does :

The Face is admirably well Drawn [ndr : du portrait de la comtesse Dowager of Exeter, par Van Dyck]; the Features are pronounc’d Clean, and Firmly, so as ‘tis evident he that did That conceiv’d strong, and Distinct Ideas, and saw wherein the Lines that form’d Those differ’d from all others ; there appears nothing of the Antique, or Raffaelle-Tast of Designing, but Nature, well understood, well chosen, and well manag’d ;

The Goût is a mixture of Poussin’s usual Manner [ndr : il s’agit ici du Tancrède et Herminie, réalisé par Poussin], and (what is very rare) a great deal of Guilio, particulary in the Head, and Attitude of the Lady, and both the Horses ; Tancred is naked to the Wast having been stripp’d by Erminia and his ’Squire to search for his Wounds, he has a piece of loose Drapery which is Yellow, bearing upon the Red in the Middle Tincts, and Shadows, this is thrown over his Belly, and Thighs, and lyes a good length upon the ground ; ’twas doubtless painted by the Life, and is intirely of a Modern Taste. And that nothing might be shocking, or disagreeable, the wounds are much hid, nor is his Body, or Garment stain’d with Blood, only some appears here, and there upon the ground just below the Drapery, as if it flow’d from some Wounds which That cover’d ;

Quotation

His [ndr : Raphaël] first manner when he came out of the School of his Master, was like those of that Age, Stiff, and Dry ; but he soon meliorated his Style by the Strength of his own fine Genius and the fight of the Works of other good Masters of that time, in and about Florence, chiefly of Lionardo da Vinci ; and thus form’d a Second manner with which he went to Rome. Here he Found, or Procur’d whatever might contribute to his Improvement, he saw great Variety of the Precious Remains of Antiquity, and employ’d several good Hands to Design all of that kind in Greece, and elsewhere, as well as in Italy, of which he form’d a Rare Collection : Here he saw the Works of Michelangelo whose Style may be said to be rather Gygantick, than Great, and which abundantly distinguish’d him from all the Masters of that Age ; I kwow it has been disputed whether Raffaele made any Advantage from seeing of the Works of this great Sculptor, Architect, and Painter ; which tho’ ‘twas (I believe) intended as a Compliment to him seems to me to be directly the contrary ; He was too Wise, and too Modest not to serve himself of whatsoever was worthy of his Consideration ; And that he did so in this Case is Evident by a Drawing I have of his Hand, in which One sees plainly the Michelangelo Tast. Not that he rested here, his Noble Mind aspir’d to something beyond what the World had then to shew, And he accomplish’d it in a Style, in which there is such a Judicious Mixture of the Antique, of the Modern Taste, and of Nature, together with his Own Admirable Ideas that it seems impossible that any other could have been so proper for the Works he was to do, and his Own, and Succeeding times.

The Ancients possess’d Both the excellent Qualities I have been treating of [ndr : Grace et Greatness], among whom Apelles is distinguish’d for Grace. Rafaëlle was the Modern Apelles, not however without a prodigious Degree of Greatness. His Style is not Perfectly Antique, but seems to be the effect of a Fine Genius accomplish’d by Study in that excellent School ; ‘Tis not Antique, but (may I dare to say it) ‘tis Better, and that by Choice, and Judgment. Giulio Romano had Grace, and Greatness, more upon the Antique Taste, but not without a great Mixture of what is peculiarly his Own, and admirably Good, but never to be imitated. Polydore in his best things was altogether Antique. […] His Style [ndr : de Michel-Ange] is his Own, not Antique, but He had a sort of Greatness in the utmost Degree, which sometimes ran into the Extream of Terrible ;
