Doch soo is onder alle d'andere ghemeynschappen dit wel een van de voornaemste, dat soo wel de Schilders als de Poëten tot de liefde deser Konsten niet soo seer door een voor-bedachten raedt, als wel door ick en wete niet wat voor een voordtvaerende toegheneyghtheyd haerer nature worden aenghevoert, van de Poëten geeft den uytnemenden Poete Ovidius dit ghetuyghenis. Daer is een sekere Goddelicke kracht in ons, ende wy worden gaende ghemaeckt, seght hy {Fastor. Lib. VI}, als ons de selvighe begint t'ontroeren. Dese voordt vaerenheydt heeft in sich 't saedt van eenen Goddelicken Geest. Van de Schilders segt Plinius {nat.hist. Xxxv.10}, Nicophanes had eenen voorde vaerenden Geest, soo dat weynighe hem daer in ghelijck sijn. En wederom in de selvighe plaetse, een sekere voordt-vaerenheydt sijnes ghemoedts, ende eene sekeren lust der Konste heeft Protogenes tot dese dinghen aen ghedreven.

[Suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] Yet as such it is the most prominent amongst all other similarities that both the Painters and the Poets are lead to the love for these Arts not so much intentionally, but rather by I do not know what kind of expeditious inclination of their nature, for the Poets the excellent Poet Ovid bears witness of this. There is a certain divine power in us, and we are made to move, he says {…}, when it begins to move us. This drive bears the seed of a Divine Spirit. About the Painters Pliny says {…}, Nicophanes had an energetic Spirit, such that few are his equals in this. And again in the same place, a certain energy of his mind, and a certain desire for Art has driven Protogenes to these things.

Doch aenghesien yemant althier lichtelick dencken magh dat hun dese gheluckighe voordt-vaerenheydt tot de Konste te ghelijck met de minnestuypen aenghekomen is, en dat sy door haere gulsigheydt ofte onkuyscheydt krachtigher tot de Konst aenghedruckt wirden dan door een aengheboren Konst-liefde, soo is het dat wy in andere Konstenaers haere naturelicke toegheneychtheydt tot de eene of de andere bysondere maniere van wercken sullen voorstellen; te meer, om dat wy in dese haere eygenschappen een sekere kracht der nature konnen bespeuren die d'andere Konstenaers niet wel en konden naevolghen.

[Suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] Yet, seen that someone might think here lightly that this fortunate drive towards the Art has arrived together with the 'convulsions of love', and that they are pressed more forcefully to the Art through their greediness or indecency than through an innate Love of Art, as such we will portray in other Artists their natural inclination for one or the other specific manner of working; more so, because we can detect a certain power of nature in their characteristics that other Artists cannot imitate well.

A list of artists with specific specialities follows. ]MO]

Blijckt dan uyt het voorgaende, hoe gantsch gheweightighen last die ghene op sich laeden, de welcke haere fame door het ene of het andere meesterstuck tot de naekomstighe gheslachten soecken uyt te strecken; ghemerckt de volmaecktheyd des wercks door de voorgemelde bevalligheydt weynigh gheholpen wordt, het en sy saecke dat daer met eenen oock in ’t gheheele werck eenige voorspoedige werckinghe van een stoute ende onversaegde voordvaerenheyd uytblijcken.

[Suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] From the previous it becomes clear, what a heavy load those take on their shoulders, who attempt to spread their fame upon the next generations by means of some or other masterpiece; seen that the perfection of the work is barely helped by the aforementioned grace, unless some successful effect of a brave and fearless diligence is immediately apparent in the whole work.

In the Latin edition (1637), this term is described as 'exactis artis opus', in the English edition the description Junius uses is: 'absolute piece of workmanship'. [MO]
